Try this Planked Alaska Salmon with Sunny Chipotle Rub Recipe to spice up your your weeknight dinner routine. Alaska salmon is a healthy, sustainable choice for a protein that will nourish your family.
- 2 to 3 tbsp. white vinegar
- 4 Alaska Gold Coho Salmon Portions
- 2 tbsp. packed brown sugar
- 2 tbsp. fresh chopped garlic
- 1 tbsp. chopped Chipotle chiles*
Soak wood plank in water for one hour or overnight.
Sprinkle vinegar onto coho salmon portions (1 teaspoon per individual portion or 2 tablespoons per salmon side). Blend remaining ingredients.
Pat wood plank with paper towels and spray-coat or lightly oil one side. Lay salmon on coated side of plank; spread 1 to 2 teaspoons rub mixture onto each salmon portion (not skin) or apply all of the rub to salmon side. Let the salmon rest 5 minutes before cooking.
Heat grill to medium-high heat. Grill salmon using indirect heat (not directly over heat) in covered grill for 10 to 15 minutes. Cook just until salmon is opaque throughout.
*Canned chiles in adobo sauce. Remove seeds, if desired, to reduce heat.
Chef’s Tip: This recipe works great whether you use a plank or cook straight on the grill. Or, bake at 400°F (6 to 7 inches from heat source) for 10 to 15 minutes.
