The most delicious food I have ever cooked was on my Big Green Egg. I saw it on Youtube and since I love salmon, I thought I would give it a try. This is how it’s done. Purchase salmon with skin still on. Rub some olive oil on the salmon and add your favorite seasoning and allow it to sit for a couple hours in the fridge with the seasoning on. Acquire cedar grilling planks and soak them in water for an hour. Get your Egg up to 450 degrees on direct heat. Place the plank on the grill for 5 minutes and then turn the plank over and lay the salmon directly onto the plank and close the lid and walk away. After 15 – 20 minutes, you will see some white creamy fat start to ooze out of the salmon, that mean it is cooked medium well and it is time to take the salmon off the grill.
My dad is not a big fan of salmon. Well, he asks me often to make it for him after he experienced my cedar plank salmon cooked the Big Green Egg. It remains moist and cooked to perfection. There is no reason to go out to a nice restaurant if you own an Egg. The Egg should last you the rest of your life. It’s a one-time purchase for a lifetime upgrade to awesome food. –Scott
