Can you use cedar wood planks in the oven?
Yes, you definitely can! For best results place the soaked cedar planks directly on the oven rack and place a pan underneath to catch any drippings. This way the air circulates around the planks.

1 lb. fresh wild salmon -Copper, Sockeye, Alaskan, cut into 4 oz pieces
1–2Cedar planks depending on size, (you can also bake the salmon on foil on a baking sheet but you won’t get the Cedar flavor)
Spray olive oil with oil mister over top of salmon.
Bake in preheated oven until flakey with a fork for about 8-10 minutes or until 140°. Use a thermometer for best results. I like to put a pan under the planks for any drips from the cedar planks.
Remove from oven and serve with Fresh Cilantro Lime Yogurt Aioli and vegetables for a complete meal.
Soaking the cedar planks: For best flavor you should soak them at least 15 minutes in hot water before using. There seems to be a lot of debate about soaking time, some say up to 2 hours but I find 15-30 minutes is really all you need as long as you use hot water.
