Cedar Planked Salmon with Jalapeño-Corn Salsa

Prep: 15 minutes plus soaking

Grill: 20 minutes • Serves: 4

1            cedar grilling plank

2            ears of corn, silks and husks removed

2            jalapeño peppers

4            teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

3            tablespoons finely chopped red onion

2            tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh cilantro leaves

2            tablespoons fresh lime juice

¾           teaspoon salt

¼           teaspoon ground chipotle powder

1½        pounds fresh salmon fillet

1            tablespoon brown sugar

1            tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1. Immerse plank in warm water as label directs. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat.

2. Coat corn and jalapeños with 2 teaspoons oil. Place corn and jalapeños on hot grill rack; cover and cook 5 minutes, turning frequently to brown all sides. When cool enough to handle, cut corn from cob. Cut jalapeños lengthwise in half; with knife, scrape out seeds and veins then finely chop.

3. In medium bowl, toss onion, cilantro, lime juice, ½ teaspoon salt, chipotle powder, corn and jalapeños. Makes about 2 cups.

4. Place salmon, skin side down, on plank and rub remaining 2 teaspoons oil over top; sprinkle with remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and brown sugar. Place plank with salmon on hot grill rack; cover and cook 15 to 20 minutes or until salmon turns opaque throughout and internal temperature reaches 145°. Drizzle salmon with lemon juice and top with salsa to serve.
