The Family Secret to Our Glazed Cedar Plank Salmon

Glazed Cedar Plank Salmon has become one of the most popular menu items across all of our restaurants. No doubt, the recipe is a winner. But what lies beneath the salmon is critical to the rustic, smoky taste that pairs so well with the sweetness of the apricot glaze.

Our salmon is cooked atop cedar planks we source from Flame Grilling Products, a family-run company in Maine. What was once a business run out of their family farmstead has become a 30,000 square foot production and distribution facility in Waldoboro, ME, with a satellite center in Glennville, GA. They now have the largest selection of grilling and smoking woods and plank varieties in the world. Still, they operate with the same heart and values from their early days.

Flame Grilling Products receives wood daily from family farms and foresters from Maine to Florida. Many rural farmers rely on their business to augment their family income. Neighbors are accustomed to seeing deliveries coming in on old farm trucks and homemade trailers behind a family SUV.

Because of the family’s commitment to quality and the planet, their wood has always been harvested sustainably as they like to say, “long before sustainable harvesting became the buzz word of the industry.” It is not mechanically harvested and arrives clean and fresh, with the bark still intact. This extra care in harvesting is one of the reasons why their products are known for the best smoke and plank flavor on the market.

We know it is one of the secrets behind the deliciousness (and popularity) of our salmon. As always, we work hard to make good food from scratch using sustainable sources that support American farmers.

At Farmers Restaurant Group, we know Everything Matters, even that cedar plank beneath your salmon. So the next time you are in one of our restaurants, take a peek.
