1 cedar plank 1 1-1/2 lb. salmon fillet 3 Tablespoons olive oil, divided Salt and freshly ground black pepper 4 thin slices of red onion 4 thin lemon slices 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
Prepare a grill. Soak the cedar plank in water for 30 minutes.
Rub the salmon fillet with olive oil. Season the salmon fillet with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Remove the plank from the water and pat dry. Using a brush, brush 1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil on the top side of the plank. Place the salmon fillet, skin side down on the plank. Lay the onion slices and lemon slices over salmon and sprinkle with thyme. Arrange the plank on the grill - off heat. (If using a charcoal grill push the coals to one side. If using a gas grill, turn one side off and put the plank on the "off-side".) Cover the grill and cook for about 15-20 minutes or until the salmon is just cooked through. Using a long metal spatula, transfer the salmon to plates and serve.
