Cedar Plank Salmon with Deconstructed Guacamole

It’s not secret I am a Salmon lover through and through, we’ve established that. But I am not sure if I have made it clear what my favorite way to eat salmon is? Grilled cedar planked salmon on a charcoal grill. Yes. That’s the perfect one.

When I first started this blog, I shared a basic recipe for how we grill our cedar plank salmon and when I stay it’s a staple at our household that would be an understatement! Since it’s summer, I wanted to throw on some freshness to the dish, so I added some deconstructed guacamole to it and it was absolutely perfect!

If you aren’t a griller, have no fear, you can bake salmon in the oven and it will still taste fantastic. I included both options in the recipe for you.
