  • 1 Whole Side of Salmon
  • 1 tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tbsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 4-5 Lemons sliced
  • 2 tsp Chopped Chives

Horseradish Sauce:

  • 2.5 tbsp Sour Cream
  • 2.5 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 2.5 tbsp Fresh Capers
  • 1.5 tbsp Prepared Horseradish
  • 1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tsp Champagne Vinegar


  • Preheat your grill for a two zone medium heat fire (around 250F).
  • Generously season your salmon with salt, pepper, garlic powder and brown sugar.
  • Thinly slice your lemons until you have enough to set the entire side of salmon on top. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the Horseradish sauce. Set to the side.
  • Add all your sliced lemons to the cool side of the grill to create a “plank” for your salmon to lay on. Place the salmon on top of the lemons. Close your grill lid and cook indirectly for 45-60 minutes.
  • Cook the salmon until it reaches an internal temperature of 130 degrees F. Once done, use a large metal spatula to pull the salmon off the grill to cool for 1-2 minutes.
  • Drizzle the horseradish sauce over the top of the salmon and garnish with more capers and the chopped chives. Serve and enjoy!



How to Choose Your Salmon
When shopping for a side of salmon at your local seafood counter, look for salmon that has a vibrant color, firm texture, and a clean scent.
