What You'll Need
  • 12 fingerling potatoes, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 4 sprigs rosemary
  • 4 cups cloves garlic, chopped
  • 12 asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 12 shisito peppers
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 3 pounds alaska wild king salmon
  • 1 cedar plank, soaked in water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 cups greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 red onion, sliced into rings
  • 1 romaine heart, cut in half
  • 2 kirby cucumber, sliced
  • 1/2 cup mixed pitted olives
  1. Place the potatoes in a sauce pot and cover with water by two inches. Season the water with salt and place the pot over high heat. As soon as the pot comes to a boil, drain the potatoes and set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, red wine vinegar, rosemary and garlic. Add the blanched potatoes, asparagus, shisito and zucchini. Toss well to coat.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together the lemon juice, garlic, yogurt, and dill. Set aside while you prepare the Alaska king salmon.
  4. Transfer the vegetables, including the red onion and romaine lettuce to a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Season the Alaska king salmon with salt and pepper and brush it with the remaining marinade in the bowl.
  5. Set up a grill for indirect grilling- set one third of the grill to high and leave the other side of the grill to low.
  6. Place the Alaska king salmon on the soaked cedar plank and place the plank on the low side of the grill. Cover the grill and cook 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, add the vegetables to the hot side of the grill, turning occasionally until tender. Place the cooked vegetables on a tray to rest.
  7. Continue cooking the Alaska king salmon until it reaches an internal temperature of 130 degrees, 20-25 minutes total.
  8. Place the Alaska king salmon, still on the cedar plank, in the center of a large platter. Arrange the grilled vegetables around the cooked Alaska king salmon, adding the cucumbers, olives and prepared yogurt sauce.
