Recipe: Cedar Planked Salmon With Grilled Peaches and Soy Ginger Vinaigrette

Serves 4

For the vinaigrette:

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon honey

½ teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger root

¼ teaspoon sesame oil

Pinch red pepper flakes or more to taste

For the salmon:

1½ pounds wild salmon fillet

2 ripe but firm peaches, pitted, skin-on

4 green onions

1 teaspoon olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

1 15-inch cedar grilling plank, immersed and soaked in water for one hour

Preheat gas or charcoal grill to medium-low heat, about 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, whisk vinegar, olive oil, soy, honey, ginger, sesame oil and red pepper until combined, and set aside.

Cut peaches in half, cutting stem end to tip. Remove pits and brush with oil. Season salmon with salt and pepper and drizzle with one tablespoon of vinaigrette.

Place plank on grill, close lid and heat for about 3 minutes. Flip plank, using tongs, and place salmon on heated side of plank. Close lid and cook for 10-15 minutes until salmon is medium rare.

Remove salmon from grill and place green onions and peaches, cut side down on grill. Grill until grill marks begin to form on peaches, about 4 minutes per side, and onions are slightly charred and tender.

Slice peach halves in half, roughly chop green onions, place in a medium bowl, tossing with half of remaining vinaigrette.

To serve: Plate peaches and onions with planked salmon and drizzle with remaining dressing just before serving.
