    Nothing fancy. Acquired a nice fillet of Coho. Tail half for dinner other half for gravalax makings. Simple seasoning, salt, cracked pepper, garlic, fresh dill and lemons.






    Yumm!

    Looks good! Did you smoke it or just grill?

    Thank you. In a way yes it got smoke. The cedar plank chars on the bottom and gives off smoke. Adds a very nice flavor to the salmon.

    Thank you Richie!

    The dill flavor is really mild even though there is a ton of it on there. I do this with other fish too. When I cook whole fish I'll stuff the cavity with dill, garlic, onion, and lemons. Super good.
     
  8. dang that looks good! dill and salmon/trout go together like peas and carrots. that's a lot like how I do my cedar planking. also, nice looking fillet!

    Cedar planked Salmon on the grill is one of my favorite ways to help reduce my Salmon inventory.  Nice job Case.

    One of my favorite meals is salmon or trout, with peas and rice!

    West coast problems.
     
  13. used to be a great lakes problem too, but in the last decade our salmon fishery has really taken a hit.... up until last year lake Michigan remained really good fishing, but even that is now suffering the baitfish crash fate. hopefully, eventually, it bounces back.

    Thanks. Wish I'd caught some this year too.

    The ocean run this year sucked off of Oregon. The fall river run was good though.

    Thanks DS! I don't eat as much fish as I used to. Pretty much lived on fish when I lived at the coast. I have a hard time buying fish and eating it. Got spoiled on fresh.
