  • 2 untreated cedar planks, soaked in water for ~1 hour
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 Wild For Salmon Sockeye Salmon Portions (~5 oz/ea)*
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 ripe peaches, pitted and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 small red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus more to taste
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced basil leaves


  1. Preheat a grill to medium heat-high. Mix together the mustard, maple syrup, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Pat the salmon fillets very dry, then place them skin-side-down and rub the mustard mixture all over top.
  2. Rub the top of the cedar planks lightly with oil, place them on the grill, close, and allow them to heat up for about 5 minutes. While the grill heats up, mix together the salsa.
  3. Combine the tomatoes, peaches and red onion in a medium bowl. Drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil, season with salt and pepper, then mix to combine.
  4. Place the salmon fillets on the cedar planks, then close the grill and let cook for about 5-10 minutes or until the salmon is opaque in the center. Add the basil to the salsa, then toss to combine. Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed.
  5. Transfer each salmon fillet to a plate, then spoon salsa over top. Drizzle with a little more olive oil, then serve immediately.


  • Salmon portions may contain a few small pin bones. Check the fillets prior to cooking and remove the bones with a pair of tweezers, or just be mindful while you’re eating.
