Prep time 1 1/2 to 2 hours, Cook time 25-35 minutes
Serves 6


  • 18 oz Wild-Caught Salmon
  • 1-1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 2 Bigelow steep-Organic Lemon Ginger Tea Bags
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 3-5 Cedar Planks for grilling 

  • 12 cups tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey
  • 1 medium cucumber, halved and sliced
  • ¼ cup sliced green onions


Soak the planks in water for at least 1 hour before grilling.  In a bowl, steep the tea in boiling water for 5-7 minutes. Remove the tea bags and set aside.

Add the salt, ginger, and lemon zest into the bowl. Allow to cool.

Trim the Salmon, and place into a shallow vessel. Pour the tea marinade over the Salmon and place into refrigeration 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Remove the Salmon and place onto the cedar boards. Place onto a hot grill and cook for 20-25 minutes until the finish is flaky and the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F.

Right before removing from the grill- drizzle with lemon juice and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

In a large bowl, whisk the vinegar, honey, water and sesame oil together.   Add the greens and the cucumber and toss thoroughly.

Serve together and garnish with sliced green onions.
