Pickled and Grilled Salmon

Orange juice
Teriyaki sauce
Salmon fillets, about 6 ounces each

Grilled salmon with citrus sauce

Pour orange juice, sugar, and teriyaki sauce in a medium size dish and place salmon fillets skin side up in dish; marinate for 1 hour before grilling.
Take a cedar grilling plank(can be bought at most stores for about one dollar) and soak in tap water for 2 hours.
Heat grill to medium heat and heat cedar plank on grill rack for 3 to 5 minutes. Place salmon, skin side down, on cedar plank on gas or charcoal grill; cover grill or close lid and cook. Cook 13 to 18 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork. Do not turn salmon over. Do not overcook. Remember that fish continues to cook after removing from the grill.
Serves 4
Note: If you prefer maple instead of cedar then use maple or for that matter any wood flavor would do. I prefer cedar for the salmon.
