Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon & Braised Fennel

I love FISH! But I am definitely intimidated by cooking fish. Hubs loves fish, you can see my dilemma. So I thought of those cedar planks I had seen at The Fresh Market. This may be my best shot at decent grilled salmon. With cedar plank in cart, I set out for salmon. On recommendation from the fish monger, I also grabbed some fresh fennel, an orange and a lemon as well as all the ingredients needed for my favorite Pesto recipe. Thus, began my challenge. Perfectly grilled Salmon stuffed with sliced lemon, orange and fennel fronds. Sides to include, Braised Fennel Bulbs with Orange and Pesto, Roasted Asparagus.

Here's what you"ll need for the Salmon and the Braised Fennel:

1 large Cedar Plank

1 large Salmon Fillet (I used a 2 lb filet)

4 large Fennel Bulbs with Fronds

3 cloves of Garlic

2 medium Oranges

2 large Lemons

1/2 cup of good White Wine

1/2 cup Vegetable Broth

1 cup of Pesto

1 tbsp Dried Dill

Kosher Salt & Pepper

Olive Oil
