I first had Cedar Plank Salmon at a local restaurant here in Orange County that boasted a butter-free kitchen and a fresh, seasonal menu. Cooking the fish on a Cedar Plank infuses a smoked flavor into the salmon that is an absolute delight to the palate. Thanks to Cedar Bay Salmon, I prepared their Sugar and Spice Cedar Planked Salmon with an easy Grilled Vegetable Couscous. The result was a delicious, healthy meal prepared in less than 1 hour!

Cedar Bay Grilling Company
Cedar Bay Grilling Company is located in a tiny South Shore hamlet of Blandford, Nova Scotia, and an award-winning producer of frozen Salmon products that bring the best of Atlantic Canada to homes around the world. Cedar Bay Grilling Company’s Cedar Planked Atlantic Salmon products are easy to prepare, yet have a “gourmet” appeal, suitable for all lifestyles and tastes. We prepare and enjoy salmon regularly, and while I am no stranger to the kitchen, I really appreciated how quick and easy it was to prepare Cedar Bay’s Planked Salmon. The result was a fish that tasted as good as, or better than, salmon dishes I’ve had at upscale restaurants.
At present, Cedar Bay Grilling Company offers Sugar & Spice and Applewood with Orange Ginger Salmon Fillets. Simply thaw and cook the salmon in 20 minutes or less. You can find Cedar Bay Grilling Company’s Cedar Planked Salmon here in California at your local Ralph’s grocery store.
Cedar Bay Grilling Company Recipe Challenge
Thanks to Cedar Bay Grilling Company, I decided to pair their Sugar and Spice Cedar Planked Salmon with an easy Grilled Vegetable Couscous recipe. This side dish is easy to prepare and incredibly versatile. I chose some of my favorite vegetables to grill and place in this side dish, but you could easily swap out your own favorites to complete this dish.
- 1 24 ounce Cedar Bay Grilling Company Sugar & Spice Cedar Planked Salmon Filet
- 1 cup Israeli couscous
- 1/2 Orange bell pepper sliced
- 1 Roma tomato diced
- 1/2 Red onion sliced
- 1/4 pound Aspargaus ends removed and diced
- 1 tbsp Olive oil
- 1 tbsp Lemon juice
- Salt and pepper to taste
Grill bell pepper, red onion, and asparagus in 1 tsp of olive oil until soft. Do not overcook.
Bring 1 1/2 cups of water to a boil
Add couscous and cook covered, on medium heat, approximate 8 to 10 minutes
Combine the grilled vegetables with couscous, remaining olive oil, and lemon juice
Serve immediately with freshly baked Cedar Planked Salmon
To complete my meal, I sliced and grilled my favorite vegetables on a skewer. My kids are adventurous eaters, but initially they were not 100% on board with this meal given all of the vegetables. However, once they tried Cedar Bay Grilling Company’s salmon and my Grilled Vegetable Couscous, they were asking for seconds and thirds!
