How do you like to prepare salmon?
Looking to get some new ideas. :)

Cedar-Planked Salmon, a smoky, earthy take on the favorite fish, is a dish commonly prepared in Washington State, where they are plentiful. To add this woodsy flavor to your fillet, brush the salmon with Michael Chiarello's honey-balsamic mixture, and then broil the fish atop soaked, browned cedar planks.
1 whole side of salmon, or 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
1 tablespoon fine sea salt, preferably gray salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Melted butter, for brushing salmon
2 untreated cedar planks, each about 5 by 12-inches, soaked in water to cover for at least 12 hours (available at hardware stores)
Extra-virgin olive oil, for oiling the planks
Preheat the broiler. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
If using a side of salmon, cut about halfway through the flesh about every 5 to 6-inches so there are some spaces for the glazes to sink in. If using salmon fillets, slice about 8 to 10 sliced angles into flesh, to help flesh more completely soak in the glaze.
In a small bowl or cup, mix the salt, pepper, and dry mustard.
In a medium glass bowl, heat the honey in the microwave for 30 seconds to liquefy further. Remove from the microwave and mix in balsamic vinegar.
Brush the top of the salmon fillets (not the skin side) with the melted butter. Season the flesh side with the spice mixture. Brush with the honey-balsamic mixture, reserving some for later.
Put the soaked planks under the hot broiler, about 5 inches from the heat source, until the wood is browned on top, about 3 minutes. With tongs, carefully remove the planks from the oven.
Immediately brush the browned surface with olive oil, then lay the salmon fillets on the oiled surface, skin side down.
Put 2 cookie sheets in the oven below where the planks will go to catch any glazes or juices that run off. Return the planks to the broiler and cook the fish for 10 minutes. Baste with honey-balsamic and place in oven. Cook until it is done to your taste, about 10 to 15 more minutes, or 20 minutes total for medium.

Miso glazed salmon is my favorite. It's quick and easy. I don't even have to marinate. This recipe says to use a broiler, but I've cooked salmon in a cover pan just fine.

Oooh those both sound awesome! Thanks ladies.

Ill have to get some miso paste, and where would I get some cedar planks?

My local Harris teeter sells them by their seafood case, but I've made it directly on a cookie sheet without the wood planks more often than not. It's so delicious!

We marinate ours in soy sauce and lemon pepper seasoning, then broil. Our 10 month old LOVES it.

This is how my DH fixes ours.

Good Luck on fixing salmon.

This one is my fave - simple marinade that glazes on the grill.

Rub the skin side with salt, then rub with butter. Place in frying pan and cook until the salmon is cooked through. Squirt with lemon, sprinkle with salt, and serve with rice and veggies.

The skin comes out SOOO crispy. :)

God bless!
