Wood planks offer a simple and elegant way to grill fish without worrying about zones and direct and indirect heating techniques. Flavor from the wood is typically subtle and lightly smoky. Look for food-safe cedar planks at large grocery or department stores.
1 large cedar plank
1 cup finely diced peeled ripe mango
1/2 cup diced peeled kiwifruit
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 serrano chile, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
4 (6-ounce) skinless sustainable salmon fillets (such as wild Alaskan)
1. Soak plank in water for 25 minutes.
2. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
3. Combine mango and next 5 ingredients (through chile). Add 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; set salsa aside.
4. Sprinkle salmon with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place plank on grill rack; grill 3 minutes or until lightly charred. Turn plank over; place fish on charred side. Cover; grill 8 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Place each fillet on a plate; top each with 1/3 cup mango salsa.
