Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 whole fillet of salmon, about 3 lbs., skin on, scored (up to but not through the skin) into serving pieces
6 T. extra-virgin olive oil
4 large garlic cloves, minced (generous 1 T.)
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. lemon zest, plus lemon wedges for serving

Directions:
Directions:
Soak an untreated cedar plank (or planks) large enough to hold a side of salmon (5 to 7 inches wide and 16 to 20 inches long) in water, weighting it with something heavy, such as a brick, so that it stays submerged for 30 minutes to 24 hours. When ready to grill, either build a charcoal fire in half the grill or turn grill burners on high for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix oil, garlic, dill, salt, pepper, and lemon zest; rub over salmon and into scored areas to coat.

Place soaked cedar on hot grill grate, close lid, and watch until wood starts to smoke, about 5 minutes. Transfer salmon to hot plank, move salmon off direct charcoal heat or turn burners to low, and cook covered until salmon is just opaque throughout - 20 to 25 minutes or longer, depending on thickness and grill temperature. (A meat thermometer inserted in the thickest section of the salmon should read 130. Let sit 5 minutes, then serve with lemon wedges.
