Cedar Salmon with Lemon Smoked Salt Butter! Here in the Northwest I do a lot of Cedar Salmon at weddings. We grill the salmon on site and it is really amazing. We use fresh Salmon and Cedar. Ideally Sockeye or King salmon is best when available but you can use any kind we generally use. Sockeye salmon, also called red salmon, kokanee salmon, or blueback salmon, is an anadromous species of salmon found in the Northern Pacific Ocean and rivers discharging into it. Alaska Salmon is also quite amazing.

Here are some questions people ask me. Do we soak the Cedar ? Actually no we do not, does that cause the cedar to cetch in fire, yes sometimes they do you just move them out of the flames, This is ok because its so much more flavor. I’m sure its a personal preference but really it is much better if you don’t soak them in this application. Like I said we do this at weddings all the time and people are amazed by the flavor and the secret is its simple, leave it alone. Let the Fish be a Fish!

I’m going to share with you our very simple recipe here. We use salmon skin on and we cut in in portions before putting it on the Cedar. The skin will stick to the cedar when you take it off and that is ok.
