  • Total Time 30 min
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 4 peaches, halved and pitted
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil 10 mL
  • 1/2 tsp salt 2 mL
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, plus leaves for garnish 60 mL
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion 60 mL
  • 2 tbsp honey 30 mL
  • 2 tsp lemon juice 10 mL
  • 1 1/4 lb centre-cut, skin-on whole salmon fillet (or similar weight in portioned, skinless fillets) 625 g
  • 1 Sensations by Compliments Cedar Plank, soaked

Directions

  • Step 1

    In bowl, combine peach halves with oil and salt; gently turn to coat. Grill, cut-side down, on high heat for 1 min. Turn over and grill another 1 min. Remove from heat to cool.

  • Step 2

    Chop cooled peaches into 1/2-in. (1-cm) cubes. Mix with basil, green onion, honey and lemon juice. Reserve 1/2 of peach salsa to serve on side later.

  • Step 3

    Place whole salmon fillet (skin-side down) or portioned fillets on cedar plank; top with remaining peach salsa. Grill on medium heat, with lid closed, 10 to 15 min., or until fish begins to flake and flesh is opaque (internal temperature of 158°F/70°C). Lift lid periodically to check fish and plank don't scorch excessively. Spray any flare-ups with water mister.

  • Step 4

    Remove planked salmon from grill. Garnish with additional basil leaves. Serve with reserved peach salsa.
