This is one of my favorite salmon dishes. I found this recipe at http://www.realsimple.com/realsimple/channel/food and wanted to share it. 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.
Soak cedar plank in water (completely submerged) for at least 20 minutes...the longer the better. Preheat a gas grill to high; adjust to medium low after 15 minutes. (If cooking over charcoal, allow the coals to burn until they are covered with white ash.)
Combine the brown sugar, oil, thyme, and cayenne in a bowl. Place the salmon skin-side down on the cedar plank. Spread mixture over the salmon. Place the planked salmon on the grilling grate and cook, with grill covered, about 40 minutes or just until the surface fat begins to turn white. If the plank catches fire, have a spray bottle of water handy to put out the fire.
Rainy-Day Method: Preheat oven to 325? F. Prepare the salmon as described above, then roast on the cedar plank for about 25 minutes.
