July 2015:  Super Simple Summer Salmon

Super Simple Spicy Summer Salmon

cedar plank soaked in water a minimum of 2 to 3 hours
fresh salmon
olive oil
fresh oregano
hot pepper flakes
salt & pepper
fresh lime

Heat gas grill to 450 degrees.

Rub all sides of the salmon with a little olive oil.
Pull the oregano leaves off the stems and sprinkle the leaves all over the salmon.
Sprinkle hot pepper flakes over salmon -- use sparingly if you do not want your fish too spicy (a little goes a long way).
Sprinkle salt and pepper, to taste, over salmon.
Gently press the spices into the salmon.

Place water-soaked cedar plank on hot grill for 2 minutes.
Turn plank over.
Place salmon on the plank skin side down.
Close grill lid and cook for 15 minutes (or a little less if the salmon is very thin).

Right before serving, squeeze a little fresh lime juice over the salmon to set the flavors.  Enjoy with a cool pasta salad or brown rice.  Voila!

The number of servings will depend on the size of your salmon.
