Honey Baked Salmon

The table presentation gets even prettier when you serve the whole side of salmon on a cedar plank, and garnish it with roasted lemons. Soak cedar plank in water for 1 hour before baking. Place 2-pound side of salmon directly on plank on a baking sheet, and cover with sauce. Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cut lemons in half and sear cut side in a medium sauté pan over high heat for 5 minutes, or until nicely browned. Add some parsley or whatever herbs you have on hand for some touches of green.
