    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 4
    2 (15x7-inch) cedar grilling planks
    4 (8-oz. each) fish Market fresh farm-raised Atlantic salmon steaks, 1-1/2-inch-thick
    ¾ c. Hy-Vee black pepper, divided
    8 tbsp. Gustare Vita extra virgin olive oil, divided
    ½ c. Italian parsley, coarsely chopped
    ¼ c. white onion, chopped
    1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
    1 tbsp. fresh oregano
    3 clove(s) garlic
    ⅛ tsp. Hy-Vee crushed red pepper
    Fresh mint, for garnish

    Things To Grab

    • Charcoal or gas grill
    • Paper towels
    • Meat thermometer
    • Food processor or blender


    1. Cover cedar planks with water; soak 1 to 2 hours.

    2. Preheat charcoal or gas grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat (375 degrees). Pat salmon steaks dry with paper towels. Sprinkle both sides with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Brush with 2 tablespoons olive oil.

    3. Place salmon steaks on soaked cedar planks; place planks on grill rack. Grill 20 to 25 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a fork (145 degrees). If necessary, use a spray bottle filled with water to put out flare-ups.

    4. For Chimichurri, place parsley, onion, remaining 6 tablespoons olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, oregano, garlic, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and crushed red pepper in food processor or blender. Cover and pulse or blend until coarsely chopped. To serve, top salmon with chimichurri. Garnish with fresh mint, if desired.
