The cedar plank is soaked in water prior to cooking so the steam keeps the fish moist and infuses it with a subtle woodsy flavor.
2 Sena Sea Salmon portions (6oz)
2 Tablespoons pesto
Salt and pepper to taste
1 Cedar plank
Preheat oven to 450 degrees, and soak cedar plank in water for at least 30 minutes.
Rinse salmon under cold water; pat dry with paper towel.
Place salmon on cedar plank, skin side down.
Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper to taste.
Cover fish with pesto.
Place cedar plank on baking sheet, and bake at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
Salmon is done when it flakes easy and just turns from translucent to opaque in the center (do not overcook).
