Planked Peach Salmon
Cedar Planked Salmon with Grilled Peaches & Soy Ginger 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
1½ pounds wild salmon fillet
2 ripe, but firm peaches, skin on
4 green onions
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 – 15” cedar grilling plank, soaked
Set EGG for direct cooking at 350°F/177°C.
In a small bowl, whisk vinegar, olive oil, soy, honey, ginger, sesame oil, and red pepper until combined; 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 cooking grid, close the dome and heat for about 3 minutes. Flip plank, using tongs, and place salmon on heated side of plank. Close dome and cook for 10-15 minutes until salmon is medium rare. Remove salmon from the EGG, place green onions and peaches, cut side down on cooking grid. Grill until grid marks begin to form on peaches, about 4 minutes per side, and onions are slightly charred and tender.
Slice peach halves in half and roughly chop green onions; place in a medium bowl, tossing with half of vinaigrette. Serve peaches with planked salmon and drizzle with remaining dressing just before serving.
