Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Salmon on a Cedar Plank
My son loves brussel sprouts and salmon. Not bad for a boy of 7. These are not your mom’s sprouts. They come out a little crispy, caramelized and sweet. The recipe is very simple. Wash and trim the sprouts.
Place in a glass baking dish and add a generous sprinkle of salt, pepper and garlic powder. Add about 2 Tbsp of olive oil and mix everything to coat the sprouts evenly.
Use a baking dish large enough for a single layer of sprouts. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. They come out a little crispy and very sweet, soft and flavorful.
The salmon on a cedar plank is also very easy. first, soak the plank underwater for about 1 hour.
Rinse the salmon fillets in water and marinate in a Ziploc bag containing equal parts soy, teriyaki and ponzu sauce. Add a splash of Worcestershire just for good measure.
Refrigerate for about 30 minutes. Remove the fish and lay on the cedar plank. Generously season the fish with salt, pepper and brown sugar.
Pre-heat the grill to high (about 500 degrees). Cook the planked fish for about 5 minutes. The edge of the plank may burn a little. Douse any flames with a spray bottle of water. Turn the BBQ off and let the salmon cook and smoke for an additional 15 minutes.
Remove the fish when it is just about cooked through. Serve the salmon and brussel sprouts with a nice chardonnay.
I’ve used frozen brussel sprouts and they work just fine. Mmm… bite, sip, repeat. This is a quick easy recipe that kids and adults will enjoy
