Cedar wrapped salmon

We are grilling again after an arduous journey to convert our natural gas BBQ to the propane tank variety. I made a great find while wandering the accessories section of the exciting BBQ showroom and parts store in North Vancouver we went to to fix our BBQ: thin cedar papers that can be soaked and wrapped around fish or vegetables.

The taste is the same delicious westcoast flavour of cedar plank salmon, but without the hour-plus soaking time and scorched board at the end of the night. Just soak the thin strips of wood in water along with some kitchen twine for 10 minutes and use them to wrap up salmon filets dressed with olive oil and freshly ground pepper. Roast for 10 minutes a side on the top rack of the BBQ (indirect heat) and you’re done. I served ours with sliced avocado and tomato and new potatoes – simple and perfect for a summer dinner.
