the jock Jim Shue @jimmyshues What day is it? Chest day. Jim can do 30 reps of 225 and can't wait for when the combine calls. He lives for the burn and a chance to tell everyone about the high school game when he made 18 solo tackles. A body of steel and a heart of gold make Jim welcome at any tailgate.

Cedar Plank Salmon Saladsource: Tervis


  • -1 cedar plank
  • -2 salmon fillets
  • -Sea salt
  • -Freshly ground black pepper
  • -White wine or cider (optional)
  • -Mixed greens
  • -2 lemon wedges
  • -Olive oil
  • -Balsamic vinagrette


Soak a cedar plank in white wine or cider for two hours, then drain it and place on a grill that has been heated to 350° (medium heat). If using two planks, put some space between them so that the air can flow around evenly.

Season the salmon fillets with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, put them on the plank and cover the grill. Cook for 12-20 minutes; the larger the fillet, the longer the cooking time. Spritz the plank with water if the edges begin to catch fire.

The salmon is done when the internal temperature hits 135°. If testing with a fork, it's ready when the layers flake apart easily. Don't overcook, or the salmon will become dry.

Take the salmon off the plank with a spatula, leaving all of the skin stuck to the board.

Serve over mixed greens dressed with olive oil and balsamtic vinagrette. Squeeze a lemon wedge over the top and enjoy. Serves 2.
