If you are looking for a recipe to impress your guests with your grilling prowess, try this recipe for candied bacon crusted salmon recipe by Saber Grills. Not only is the taste “to die for,” the grilling technique will capture their interest. Plank grilling fish is a Native American cooking method originating from the Northwest, but the technique has spread across the continent. This approach grills the salmon on top of cedar or alder wood planks that have been soaked in water. The plank serves as a cooking vessel, but it also imparts smokiness as it begins to smolder.
