Ingredients

1
2-pound salmon fillet, skin on
1
cedar plank, soaked in water 20 minutes
1/2

tablespoons
canola oil
1
tablespoon
dried thyme leaves

  2. Place the salmon skin-side down on the cedar plank.
  3. Combine the brown sugar, oil, thyme, and cayenne in a bowl. Brush over the salmon.
  4. Place the planked salmon on the grilling grate and cook, with the grill covered, until mostly cooked through but still slightly pink in the middle, about 40 minutes.
