The Open Kitchen: Bursting With Flavor


1 tsp cracked black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp mustard seeds (optional)


  1. Soak wood plank in water for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat gas grill to medium-low heat (160-180 degrees).
  3. To prepare dry rub, combine salt, sugar, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper and mustard seeds.
  4. Place salmon, skin side down, on soaked plank and work in dry rub,
  5. Place plank in a covered grill and smoke for at least 2 hours, checking after 60-90 minutes for doneness. Fish is done when it flakes with a fork, and it should not be too salty. As fish smokes, the salt content reduces. Adjust the cooking time and salt to your taste.


Note: Smoking fish can take between 2-6 hours, depending on personal taste, the size of the fillet, and the fat content of the fish.
