# Cedar Plank Salmon # cooking

Crockpot Monday: Cedar Plank Salmon

Crockpot Monday - Cedar Plank Salmon
Do you ever get the urge to try something fancy? I've heard a lot about cedar plank salmon and thought I'd give it a try. It sounds fancy, but it turns out that it's not super hard to make.

Cedar Plank Salmon:

1 single-use cedar plank, cut to size
1 pound salmon
2 limes
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon rosemary
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 Tablespoon honey

Soak the plank in water for at least an hour. While it is soaking, combine the dry spices in a bowl. Rub the salmon on all sides with the spice rub, and then drizzle on the honey. Top with slices from 2 limes, and slide it all into a plastic storage bag. Refrigerate while the board is soaking, at least one hour, but overnight in the refrigerator is fine.

When the time has passed, put the wet cedar plank into the bottom of your crockpot. Remove the salmon from the bag and put it (with the lime slices) directly on the board.

Cover and cook on low for 2 hours. Check the salmon. It should flake easily with a fork. If it doesn't, cook on low for an additional 30 minutes and then check again.

Extra Note:  You can buy cedar grilling planks at places like Walmart, Amazon, and even local hardware stores. Just look for ones marked for grilling.
