Planked Salmon with Mango and Watermelon Salsa

Prep Time:  15 minutes + soak

Cook Time:  15 minutes

Yields:  4 servings



1 mango, diced

1 cup diced watermelon

Juice of 1 lime

½ small Serrano pepper, finely chopped

2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped


4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets

1½ teaspoons Fire & Flavor’s Salmon Rub

1 large cedar plank, soaked


Preheat grill to medium-low heat, about 350°F.  In a medium bowl, combine mango, watermelon, lime juice, Serrano, and fresh mint;  set aside or refrigerate.

Sprinkle salmon with Salmon Rub and season lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Place soaked plank on grill, close lid, and heat for 3 minutes.  Using tongs, flip plank and place salmon on hot side of plank.  Close lid and cook for 10-15 minutes until done to your liking, depending on thickness of fish. 

Remove plank and salmon from grill (remember salmon will continue cooking after you remove it from grill).  Serve immediately with fruit salsa.
