Salmon on a plank

I love fresh salmon, and we are lucky enough to have a vendor at our farmers market who gets it straight from the source. This recipe would also work in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes. Plank cooking on the BBQ gives it a nice smoky flavor.

Ingredients:
1 slab of salmon
Canola spray
1/2 tsp fennel pollen
1/2 tsp herbs de provence
Salt and pepper

Soak plank for at least a day in a bucket of water.

Heat grill to medium high with plank on grill.

Pay salmon dry. Spray with canola oil. Spring herbs on top, salt and pepper to taste.

Place salmon on plank and BBQ for about 20 minutes until still a little pink inside.

Serves 2.
