  • 1 Cedar plank shingle cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 food processor


  • 2 8 oz Wild Alaska Salmon fillets, skin off
  • 3 Tbsp Sinful Citrus Vinaigrette (see below)
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp Brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Duke’s Ready Anytime SeasoningDuke's Seafood Ready-Anytime Spice Blend
  • 2 Tbsp Duke’s Superb Herb Blend (see below)

Sinful Citrus Vinaigrette

  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh whole garlic cloves
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh basil leaves, stems removed
  • 3/4 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp Fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 Cup + 2 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Freshly squeezed lemon

Duke’s Superb Herb Blend

  • 1 Tbsp Fresh rosemary, diced small
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh thyme, diced small
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh oregano, diced small


  • Fillet salmon using the deep-skin method, which is to remove the gray matter along with the skin and pluck the pin bones with needle-nose pliers or boning tweezers. If you are buying from your local fishmonger, ask them to do it. Divide into 2- 8oz portions.
  • Wash planks and rub with olive oil.
  • Combine brown sugar, Duke’s Superb Herb Blend, and Duke’s Ready Anytime Seasoning in a bowl and rub the mixture on both sides of the salmon.
  • Place the Salmon on the cedar plank.
  • Bake for approximately 8 minutes at 400 degrees F.
  • Serve with a side of Sinful Citrus Vinaigrette for dipping.
  • Feel free to make whatever side dishes you would like to complete the meal.

Sinful Citrus Vinaigrette

  • Place egg in a food processor and blend for 2 minutes until frothy. While mixing, blend in garlic and basil until smooth. Add salt and pepper. In a thin, constant stream, slowly add olive oil (too fast and the dressing will separate). Add lemon juice and mix just until smooth. This dressing can be prepared up to 2 days ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator.


Sustainable only please: Try to find Wild Alaska Salmon in your frozen food aisle. Yes, frozen. Fish frozen within 48 hours of catch has a fresher flavor than “fresh” fish that may be older than you think. If you have a fishmonger you trust, by all means, purchase from them.
