Cedar Plank Salmon with Asparagus and Grapes

3 Oct

Since we eat salmon so much, I am constantly creating new recipes with our favorite ingredients. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it is not worth telling anyone about it. However, this was very different and it worked. I served it with grilled corn.

  •  salmon fillet
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 pound asparagus, cut up
  • 1 chopped shallots
  • 1 cup seedless red grapes, quartered
  • 1 tsp capers
  • 1 tbs red wine vinegar

Soak cedar plank in water over 2 hours; drain. Preheat grill high. Sprinkle salmon fillets with pepper and salt.  Place fillets, skin-side down on plank. Grill 12 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Coat a skillet with olive oil. Heat the skillet over medium-high heat, add asparagus and shallots; sauté for 3-4 minutes. Stir in grapes and capers; remove from heat. Stir in vinegar, season with salt and pepper.  Top the salmon with asparagus and grapes.
