Fill a basin with warm water. Put the cedar planks in and soak them for a couple of hours. You may also consider adding a splash of bourbon to mix in the water. Then, prepare the sauce by putting all the liquid ingredients (soy sauce, pineapple juice, lemon juice, olive oil, honey and vinegar) in a saucepan. Simmer the ingredients over medium heat setting. Once it boils, reduce the setting to low. Add in the brown sugar, black pepper (a teaspoonful), paprika, garlic powder and the cayenne pepper. Simmer the mixture and stir occasionally. After 15 minutes, or once the sauce has turned thick in texture, turn off the heat. Set aside.
Meanwhile, preheat the outdoor grill with medium heat setting. Put the planks over the grate. When you see some smoke and a crackling sound, you can already start cooking the salmon on these planks. Place the salmon on a plate and sprinkle some pepper and salt. Arrange the fish on the cedar planks and close the grill’s lid. Cook the salmon for 10 minutes.
Then, open the lid and spread a little amount of sauce on the top portion of the salmon. Close the lid once again and cook for another 5 minutes. Afterwards, remove the fish from the grill and serve on a plate. Add the remaining pepper and honey sauce.
