Dinner for one last night. All the kids were either asleep or away and Heather was out for a work dinner, leaving little old me to “cope!” Ha… bring on “Minnie” and a nice piece of salmon, coupled with a Chinese style fried rice. This has to be the easiest recipe for anyone to recreate, and especially handy for a mini egg on those nights when you’re only cooking for one.
Set up your mini for direct heat and fire it up to a balmy 400F. Take one of your full size cedar planks and cut about a quarter off. You’ll grill your salmon right on top of that piece and it fits perfectly in the mini egg. To prepare your salmon, drizzle your plank with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle with Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Do the same for the salmon but then add a good fist full of brown sugar on top. Let that sit until your grill is ready to go.
Place your planked salmon on the grid, close the dome and set the timer for 16 minutes. Once it pings, remove the plank (carefully) and let it rest for about 5 minutes. Get your sides ready then serve.
The salmon was delicious and all I can say is that the family missed a yummy meal last night…burp.
