Curried Plank-Grilled Salmon

  • Yield 4 servings
  • Prep 10 mins
  • Cook 10 mins

The curry-seasoned marinade and refreshing cucumber-mango relish give grilled fish a decidedly international flair.

Be sure to use a food-grade cedar or alder plank suitable for cooking. You can find them at some gourmet stores or online.


1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
2 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 salmon fillets (5 to 6 oz.)
1 cedar or alder grilling plank, soaked for 1 hour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Combine marinade ingredients in large zip-top plastic bag. Add fish; seal. Marinate in refrigerator at least 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat one side of the grill.
  3. Place salmon skin side down on plank. Sprinkle salmon with kosher salt. Place plank on unlit side of grill. Cook, covered, until salmon flakes with a fork, about 10 minutes. Serve with Cucumber Mango Relish.
