What to do for a birthday girl who loves salmon?
Make it special.

This is so easy and gives such a nice taste.
Ever the fabulous chef, Rachelle's husband makes it often - go see this recipe if you want more inspiration. And this recipe. And this recipe.

For the 'rub'
*brown sugar
*cumin, ground
*garlic powder
*salt & pepper

I never measure, sorry! Taste as you mix, it should be sweet, but not too much so that you taste the salt and get a bit of bite from the cayenne.

For the basting sauce
*maple syrup
*sambal olek
*a tiny bit of oil
*soy sauce

Clean the fish and cut into portions. I let it to marinate in soy sauce, canola oil and a bit of sesame oil for about 6 hours. Soak your planks about 2 hours before grilling.

Bring the fish to room temp, pat dry and coat with the rub. Put on presoaked wooden planks (we had cedar) and cook on low heat on the bbq, basting from time to time.

The David Seal of Approval. He usually hates fish.

How about if it's not my birthday, but I love salmon anyway? Will definitely try this. Soon. Before Copper River Salmon is gone!

Nice! The perspective makes it look like you have really tiny feet, or the salmon is really, really big! And obviously looks delicious!!
