Salmon Ingredients:
  • 4-6 Salmon Filets
  • 10-12 Slices of Lemon
  • Dill for garnish
Seasoning Ingredients:
  • cup of Dijon Mustard
  • 1.5 tbsp of Sea Salt
  • 1 tbsp of Black Pepper
  • 1 tbsp of Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tsp of Granulated Garlic
  • 2 tsp of Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Powder
  • 1 tsp Dried Thyme
Lemon Dill Cream Sauce:
  • 4 tbsp Sour Cream
  • 2 tbsp Yogurt
  • 1 tbsp Dill
  • 1 Lemon juiced
  • 1 tsp Salt
  1. Submerge the wood planks underwater for at least one hour. Once done, pull out and dry off.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the seasoning ingredients. Lather your salmon in dijon mustard and season thoroughly. Lay down slices of lemon on the wood plank and add salmon filets on top until all are on the planks.
  3. Preheat your charcoal for indirect medium-high temperature (around 375F) using the two zone method.

  4. Once the fire is ready, add your salmon to the cool side of the grill and cover the pit or grill. Let cook for about 10 minutes before rotating the wood planks around. This will help for even cooking. The salmon is done when it reaches 145F internal and is caramel brownish-red on the outside. Pull it off once done and let rest for 2 minutes to cool.
  5. In a bowl, mix the ingredients for the Lemon Dill Cream Sauce.
  6. Top the salmon with the cream sauce and fresh dill. Enjoy!
