Sriracha lime cedar plank salmon

I’ll tell you the secret one of my most successful salmon recipes. I call it the 4S recipe: Spicy, Sour, Sweet and Smoky.

Basted with a sriracha, lime, and maple syrup mayonnaise, these salmon fillets are smoked on a cedar plank in my Cuisinart Clermont Pellet Grill & Smoker at 350F for 15 minutes for a perfect tender and flaky result. Add some chopped chili peppers and some fresh arugula sprouts before serving and you will have a five-star worthy dish in the comfort of your backyard.
