Roasted Cedar Plank Salmon

   By chef Willie White of the fabulous Algonquin Hotel

  • 2 pound salmon fillet
  • 3 T vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 T soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp. chopped garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. white pepper
  • 1/3 cup Rye or Scotch Whisky
  • 1 T brown sugar

   Place salmon filet in a long shallow dish. Mix togther all ingredients and pour over the salmon filet. Marinate for 1/2 hour.
   Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Place the cedar plank directly on the oven rack and bake for 8-10 minutes. This will lightly toast the wood. Remove the plank from the oven and rub with a thin coating of olive oil while plank is still hot. Place salmon directly on the hot plank and roast on the plank for about ten minutes.
