This healthy grilled salmon recipe gets flavor from the smoking cedar plank under it and from fresh rosemary sprigs laying on top of it. Oh, yeah and a healthy dose of garlic too. So, stay healthy, grill salmon, and enjoy.


  • 1 2-pound/900 g. salmon fillet
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced (use less if preferred)
  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL sea salt (you can use kosher salt as well)
  • 1 untreated cedar plank

  2. Preheat grill. 

  3. Place salmon fillet on plank. 

  4. Pour lemon juice over the fish. 

  5. Evenly coat the fillet with garlic, salt and black pepper. 

  6. Place rosemary sprigs on top and place on grill over medium heat, until internal temperature of fish reaches 145 degrees F, in the thickest part. Watch to make sure that the cedar wood doesn't catch fire.
