Megan makes an incredible herb coated salmon.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup dill
  • 1/4 cup chives, chopped
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves, tightly packed
  • 2 tablespoons tarragon leaves
  • 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 large shallot, roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 lemons
  • Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 side of salmon, deboned and skin on
  • Cedar plank

Steps

  1. Begin by soaking your cedar plank in water for at least 1 hour. Make sure it is fully submerged.
  2. In a food processor, combine the dill, chives, basil, tarragon, parsley, shallot, garlic, zest from both lemons, drizzle of EVOO, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Blend until a chunky paste forms.
  3. Place the salmon in a resealable bag. Add the herb paste and coat the salmon. Place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes up to 2 hours to marinate.
  4. Preheat your oven to 425°F. Remove the salmon from the bag and place on the soaked plank. Mound up the extra marinade paste on top of the salmon; it will form a crust while it cooks.
  5. Place the plank on a sheet tray in the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes or until cooked to your preferred doneness.
  6. Remove from grill and juice 1 lemon over. Serve hot.
