Ingredients

  • One 2lb. salmon filet with skin (1½ inches thick)
  • Drunken Garlic Black Bean Sauce

Equipment

  • Cedar plank for grilling (about 6×15 inches)

Preparation

Soak cedar grilling plank in water to cover 2 hours, keeping it immersed.

Prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-hot charcoal (medium-high heat for gas).

Spread Drunken Garlic Black Bean on flesh side of salmon and let stand at room temperature 15 minutes.

Put salmon on plank, skin side down (if salmon is too wide for plank, fold in thinner side to fit). Grill, covered with lid, until salmon is just cooked through and edges are browned, 13 to 15 minutes. Let salmon stand on plank 5 minutes before serving
