Honey Dijon Planked Salmon from the Girl and the Kitchen

Honey Dijon Plank Salmon


  • 3 pounds wild salmon
  • 1/2 a cup of Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 4 minced cloves of garlic minced on the microplaner
  • sliced lemon slices optional
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives
  • juice of half a lemon
  • salt and pepper


  • Season salmon liberally with salt and pepper.
  • In another bowl, mix up honey, dijon, minced garlic, lemon juice and chives. I always put lemon juice with fish. I just feel it brightens the flavor.
  • Preheat your grill to high. Place the salmon on your planks that were previously soaking. Place a few dollops of the honey mustard mixture onto fish.
  • Spread it with a spoon or a knife. Whatever your heart desires. I did it right in the package that the salmon came in. You can also add some lemon slices on top to complete the picture. I like to slice the salmon into my portions right here on the planks so that it does not get messy after I cook them.
  • Place the planks on the grill and close the grill.
  • Allow to cook for 10 minutes or until the flesh is pink...you want it to be cooked to medium. THAT is the temperature good salmon should be cooked to.
