A great recipe from Jack and Jeanine Little.

2 lbs. salmon
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp. canola oil
2 tbsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. cayenne pepper (you can experiment with this amount, I found about 1/4 tsp. works well)
cedar planks (7″ x 14″) – you can get these at Home Depot, Lowes, etc. in the seasonal section. Soak in water about 2 hours before grilling

ON THE BARBEQUE
Preheat grill to medium heat
Put salmon on planks skin side down
Combine brown sugar, oil, thyme, and cayenne pepper in a bowl, then spread on salmon
Grill 20-30 minutes until salmon flakes easily
NOTE: Keep a spray bottle with water near grill to keep cedar planks from drying and catching on fire (I learned this the hard way!)

IN OVEN
Same as above, except preheat oven to 350 and cook 20-30 minutes

Good Luck and Enjoy!!!
