Honey Mustard Planked Salmon

This was so yummy. The marinade/glaze would also be really good on grilled chicken or pork tenderloin.

Serves 2
2 salmon fillets
3 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. dijon mustard
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. grated lemon zest
Salt and pepper
Cedar plank, soaked in water for at least 1 hour

Preheat the grill. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper.

Whisk the remaining ingredients together in a small bowl. Place the salmon in a shallow baking dish and pour 3/4 of the marinade over the fish, reserving a small amount. Let the fish marinate for about 30 minutes.

Place marinated fish on soaked plank and set the plank on the grill over medium-high heat. Let the fish cook for about 25 minutes, basting every 5 minutes with the reserved marinade.

The plank may burn a little - this is OK. Keep a spray bottle of water nearby in case it really starts to burn. Enjoy!
