  • 4 portions of salmon about half a bag of Aldi Wild Salmon, frozen
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 large white onion


  • What to do the night before:
  • - Remove the salmon from their individual packaging.
  • - Place in a glass bowl and cover.
  • - Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
  • - Also soak the planks overnight in water. I place a pan on top to keep them completely
  • submerged. If you forget to soak the planks overnight, you should soak them in water at least one hour before use.
  • When you’re ready to grill:
  • - Heat your coals to medium hot (or preheat your gas grill).
  • - Slice the onion into 1/4 inch thick slices. Place the onion on the planks.
  • - Arrange the salmon on top of the onion with the skin side down.
  • - Drizzle with oil and then sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
  • - Place the planks on the grill and close the lid. Salmon will cook more quickly than you think.
  • - It’s done when the fish flakes easily with a fork. You could also measure the internal temperature of the thickest portion of the filet. When it reaches 145 degrees you’re ready to go!
  • - Serve immediately.
