Cedar Plank Wild Salmon with Mango Salsa

June 9, 2015


Tonight, we are having dinner with our friends Bobbii and Steve across the street.  As you frequent my blog, you will hear of them often, we usually get together once a week for dinner, drinks and relaxation! I volunteered to bring the main course, and took the opportunity to utilize their Traeger smoker and make a Cedar Plank Wild Salmon with a Mango Salsa. A salmon on the smoker is amazingly easy and perfect for a quick weeknight dinner or an elegant dinner party.  I soaked the cedar planks all day ensure the salmon picked up all the flavors from the cedar. I opted not to season the salmon since I was making a Mango Salsa topping, just a little olive oil and lemon.

I love a fresh, sweet, spicy salsa on top of fish. The acidic flavors complement the fish and bring out all the fresh flavors!
