Grilled Salmon With Brown Sugar & Cracked Pepper

This is a double post: Thanks to Debbie at Mountain Breaths for hosting Kick Off to Summer BBQ. Also, Designs by Gollum is hosting Foodie Friday. Be sure to stop by both of these blogs for tempting goodies.
My husband is the grill master in our house. He found this recipe in a magazine our supermarket publishes. Wegmans is an upscale supermarket in the New York and Pennsylvania areas. Check out Wegmans.com for other recipes.

We had this salmon with grilled vegetables. It is grilled on a cedar plank. This is good with a dollop of creamy horseradish sauce on the side.

We also put some zucchini, eggplant and tomatoes on a skewer, based with olive oil and put it on the grill, too.


4 salmon fillets (about 6 oz each), skinned

1 Tbsp dark brown sugar

1 Tbsp Cracked Pepper Blend

Cedar plank, soaked 1 hour in water


Preheat grill on HIGH 10 min.
Combine brown sugar and cracked pepper together in small bowl; mix well.
Arrange salmon on cedar plank which has been soaked for 1 hour;

Rub brown sugar mixture evenly over fillets.
Place plank with salmon on grill; close cover.

Reduce heat to MEDIUM; cook salmon 12-15 min, until internal temp reaches 130 degrees. Check by inserting thermometer halfway into thickest part of salmon.

Remove from grill; let rest at least 2 min.

All the best,

Oooh, Jacob and my Dad will be indebted to you. They both keep asking for salmon and I never prepare it. Now that I have a great recipe, I haven't an excuse. ~ Robyn

Nice presentation! You can never go wrong with salmon and veggies. Thanks for sharing.

Kathy said...

That looks so delicious. I will have to try that. I don't have a plank so I guess I will be out looking for one in my shopping travels today.

Quinn said...

That looks really good and I'm alway searching for ways to get a variety of fish in our diets -so glad you shared.

Joyce said...

This looks awesome!

Mary said...

What a wonderful presentation. I need some new recipes for salmon, so yours is especially appreciated. Blessings ... Mary

Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer said...

That looks amazing. I'm planning on using my grill a lot this summer and this will be first on my list. Thanks for sharing!

printersdevil said...

That looks great and sounds delicious. We love salmon, but usually cook in in the house in the oven. I just bought DH a new gas grill for Father's Day (early pressie from DD and me) so we will have to give this a try. He has always been a die hard charcoal man until now.

I am running behind in posting my stuff for this event. I will get it up in the morning. I was gone all day and then came home and worked on planting some flowers. Then I discovered that my camera batteries were dead!

Kathleen said...

That looks delicious, Karen!
Glad grill time is finally here.
Thanks for posting my Let there be White event..June 23rd..Hope you are taking part!!!

Jayne said...

That looks delicious. Bet the flavor was wonderful.

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Yummm, this looks so delicious! My hubby would love it with the horse radish. ☺ Diane

Debbie at Mountain Breaths said...

Karen, we also enjoy salmon cooked on cedar planks, so thank you for sharing this to remind me :-)

This time of year, we are finding some nice salmon ie. sockeye, King, etc. I also love your idea (and presentation) for grilling veggies!

Thank you so much for participating in the KIck Off to Summer event!!

Foley said...

I'm not a big fan of salmon but I've never tried it grilled..maybe that is the trick!

Love the grilled veggies...

Marsha said...

You are going to smile when I get my BBQ kickoff post up - we had the same thing ;) Salmon is a favorite here.

How fun to see you joining in the BBQ fun and everything looks wonderful.

Joyce said...

Oh my I just read your comment about your fire and I feel so bad for you and your family. I hope everyone was OK and I bet you look at life in a whole different way now. Have a good weekend.

I love Wegmans, we have one close by, and the magazine is great for ideas. Wegmans has all of the oriental ingredients that you need for Asian cooking, even the mirin, which is an oriental cooking wine. I was worried when we moved from NY that I wouldn't have access to those ingredients, but so far that store has come through every time, even with the natural foods when the kids visit. The salmon looks wonderful. You've inspired me to try those cedar planks... Nancy

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

This look wonderful. We love grilled salmon.

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

We don't have a Wegmans in our area but we have a locally-owned chain called Sendiks Food Market that puts out a great food and recipe magazine also.

We love grilled salmon here and this recipe sounds great!

Gollum said...

I can just imagine the burst of flavors--the brown sugar, pepper, and salmon...infused with the scent of charcoal...heaven.
I'm definitely making this tomorrow night.

Hi Karen
My hubby likes to grill salmon too. I"ll tell him about this recipe. Thanks for leaving a comment. I don't know why my name doesn't link when I leave a comment. I'll make sure that it does this time.

Beach House Dreamer said...

Love grilled salmon, and on a cedar plank! I have never tried that. Very interesting. Tonight it's scallops on the grill though. Wild Alaskan salmon is not yet available, only farm raised, and I read that one should not buy those, because they're packed into tight quarters, then medicated to prevent disease.

Shelia said...

Hi Karen. This looks so good and my Mr. Precious would be all over this - he LOVES salmon!
You know, I did just what you'd said about changing the date and it wouldn't budge. I think that's why I got so frustrated! Oh, well!
Thanks so much for your advice!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I wish we had a Wegman's! Great looking salmon and vegetables, and especially on the plank, so good!

Great Kick-off to summer!
