Ingredients

1 pd salmon ( or more depending on guests for DH and I 1 pd is suffecient plus a little leftovers)
Pesto
Lemon
Dill ( HAS TO BE FRESH)
Salt and Pepper
Cedar Planks- You can get these at one of two places, either your local hardware store, just ask for a small plank of untreated cedar or many grocery stores now sell them ( I get mine at Publix)


Soak Cedar plank submerged for atleast an hour, I usually let it soak all day while I am at work.


Heat grill to a med lo heat. ( you don't want to char the wood) Place wood in by itself on rack for 5 to 8 minutes ( then helps get some of the excess moisture out)


For you salmon: Top with pesto (I like a quazzy thick layer but it is really to your preference),


a slice of lemon, a sprig of Dill, salt and pepper.


Take Salmon place on plank, and leave in covered grill for approx 15-20 minutes (depending on thickness)


Fish should be slightly flaky and a lighter color.
