Hello everyone and welcome back to another overdue episode of Nikoli's Kitchen! I can only apologize for the gap in content last week as I'd bulk recorded some future episode stuff and the file got corrupted when I was saving it, so it was all lost. I am BACK, now, and here with a full breakdown of grilled cedar plank salmon... and I share some sage advice from one of my favorite TV characters of all time. Thank you all so much for listening and for all of your amazing support. You are incredible. Please never give up on yourself! 


This year's Race Against Time takes place August 14th-15th from Noon to Midnight EST.

Featured Recipe for this Episode

8 T (1/2 c) unsalted butter
4-6 cloves of garlic, finely minced
2 T ginger, finely minced
2 T brown sugar
Zest of 2 lemons
1 t turmeric

Salmon filets

Let the butter get about halfway to room temperature and add it to a large bowl.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir together with a wooden spoon until well-combined.
Transfer the herbed butter to wax paper and spread it out.
Add another sheet of wax paper over the top or fold over the one you're using, then spread the butter thinner (around 1/8"). 
Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut out slabs of butter that are approximately half the size of your filets.

A few hours before grilling, soak your cedar plank in white cooking wine.
Bring your grill up to high heat (500°+).
Season the filets lightly with salt, pepper, and turmeric.
Sear the filets skin-side up for 2-1/2 minutes and remove from the grill.
Reduce grill heat to 375°.
Place your cedar plank on the grill.
Place the salmon filets skin-side down on the grill. 
Add the herbed butter over the top and close the lid. Grill for 12-14 minutes or until cooked through (will depend on thickness).
