Preparation steps

Step 1/8
Immerse and soak the plank in salted water for at least 1 hour or overnight; drain.
Step 2/8
Prepare the grill for indirect grilling and heat to medium-high.
Step 3/8
Rinse the salmon steaks under cold running water and pat completely dry with paper towels. Combine the olive oil and lemon juice and lightly brush both sides of the salmon steaks. Generously season both sides with salt and pepper. Lay the salmon steaks on the prepared plank.
Step 4/8
Place the cedar plank in the center of the prepared grill grate, away from the heat. Cover the grill and cook until cooked through, around 15 to 25 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily or until desired degree of doneness. Check the plank occasionally and mist with water if edges start to catch fire.
