Smiths had fresh cedar-wrapped salmon and veggies on Manager’s Special yesterday, so I bought a package! I wouldn’t normally pay the $11-$12 for this convenience, but their looming expiration date brought the price down to about $7. I can get excited about that! The veggies in the wrap appeared to be carrot and green bean, to which we added asparagus and thick turnip slices for a full Paleo dinner.
My griller man was a little worried because the wrap would prevent him from using the meat thermometer, so we Googled how long to grill cedar wrapped salmon. The results came back as anywhere between 4 to 7 minutes per side, for a grand total of 8 to 14 minutes, on indirect heat. We have a small cheapo gas grill with lava rocks, so we just turned the flame down as low as it would go and did six minutes on one side and seven minutes on the other. The salmon ended up slightly overdone, but still moist and delicious thanks to the wrap, and besides – I prefer to cook my about-t0-expire fish as thoroughly as possible.
