Immerse and soak plank in water 1 hour; drain.
Prepare grill to medium-high heat.
Combine salt and next 7 ingredients (through cinnamon); rub salt mixture over fish.
Place plank on grill rack; grill 3 minutes or until lightly charred. Carefully turn plank over; place fish on charred side of plank. Cover and grill 25 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
Cut fish crosswise into 8 (4 1/2-ounce) pieces.
Wine note: For this dish, you'll want a juicy red that is moderate in alcohol and tannin, like Wild Horse Pinot Noir 2006 ($2
from California's central coast. The cherry fruit is refreshing, while the cigar box quality echoes the cedar plank flavor. To save some leftover wine for the second meal of Grilled Salmon Tacos, simply recork and refrigerate the bottle overnight. Jeffery Lindenmuth
Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc
Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc are my top picks for Salmon. To decide on white or red, you should consider your seasoning and sauces. Chardonnay is a great friend to buttery, creamy dishes, while sauvignon blanc can complement herb or citrus-centric dishes. A light-bodied, low-tannin red such as the pinot noir goes great with broiled or grilled salmon. The Hahn Winery Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay with a 4.1 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 17 dollars per bottle.
