Salmon is Smokin' !

On a cedar plank anyway!  Tonight's feast was Cedar Plank Salmon with Mango Kiwi Salsa.  

The recipe was out of this month's Cooking Light Magazine- my favorite go-to for weeknight dinners that keep me on my weight loss path.   The fish was really moist and delicious and - oh my! - the smell of that cedar plank really gave it some great smoky flavor.  The best part...Sooo easy!

Just soak the plank for 25 minutes in water in the sink.  Throw the plank on a medium high grill for 3 minutes to get the char going.  Season the fish with salt and pepper. Flip the plank over and set the fish on the charred side and grill for about 8 minutes.  After is the best part...Throw the plank away!  No clean up!  How good is that?

I served it up with the last of the farmer's market treasures - baby squash - and some orzo flavored with a tiny bit of butter and garlic chives from the garden.  Pretty edible for a Thursday!

What are you feasting on this HOT summer day?
