Quick Tip

Grilled Cedar-Plank Salmon
Cedar boards for grilling are sold at gourmet food shops, housewares stores, and lumberyards. (Make sure the lumber hasn't been treated with preservatives or other chemicals.) The fish comes out smoky and moist. You'll never grill salmon the traditional way again.
