Smoked Salmon is a great way to enjoy wood fired meats without having to labor over the grill all day. Since it only takes a relatively short amount of time to cook, this is a popular dish amongst seafood lovers who own a pellet grill or smoker. The salmon fillets are seasoned with sweet and savory Japanese flavors and then cooked over a cedar plank to infuse wood flavor and protect the skin from the grill. Light smoke delicately cooks the fish low and slow, while the wood fired flavor permeates the tender salmon meat.
At 225°F it should take about 60 minutes for 2, 1 lbs salmon fillets to cook on the grill.
We recommend using a hardwood with a lighter flavor such as Fruitwood for a delicate meat like fish. Try using Apple Hardwood Pellets with this recipe to enhance the sweetness of the rice wine vinegar seasoning.
When salmon is fully cooked, the flesh of the fish should be pink, but not translucent.
