Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut Oil

Since this is my third year in cookout week, I decided to really step outside my comfort zone with the recipes I came up with. First one up is a healthy grilled salmon recipe made with Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut¬†Oil.


From the Barleans’ website about the coconut oil:

It tastes just like but but has all the benefits of Coconut Oil like MCTs.


This is perfect!  salmon is healthy and so is the butter flavored coconut oil. Sounds like I have the winning combination here.

Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon

I have come to find I really like cedar plank grilled salmon. There are a few tips from the Weber Grills to follow when you want to use cedar planks for grilling up a salmon recipe.


  • ¬†Soak the plank in water for at least an hour
  • Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350¬į to 450¬įF).
  • Place the soaked plank over direct medium heat and close the lid (no food should be on the plank)
  • After 5 to 10 minutes, when the plank begins to smoke and char, turn the plank over then add the food you want to cook on it.

Spiced Maple Salmon

One thing that is good about salmon is versatile and can take on quite a few flavors. I choose to do a sweet and spicy style salmon.


Maple Salmon

The reason I went with the sweet maple for this grilled salmon recipe is that I had a maple glazed salmon entree at a local seafood restaurant here in Cleveland.  It was out this world!

Spiced Maple Recipe

Unlike the salmon recipe I had at the restaurant, I wanted to make this spiced maple salmon different. One was I wanted to grill it on a cedar plank. The other was I wanted to make it a spiced maple recipe.

Grilling Salmon

Salmon actually doesn’t¬†take long to grill up. In fact, grilling salmon takes minutes depending on how thick it is. For grilling a salmon recipe. it is best to grill over medium heat.

  • 1″ thick fillets = 4 to 5 minutes per side
  • 3/4″ thick fillets = 3 to 4 minutes per side
  • 1/2″ thick fillets = 2 to 3 minutes per side



Sweet and Spicy Salmon

The combination of adding spice to the maple marinade. Then grilling the salmon upon a cedar plank just made an awesome cookout week recipe. This salmon recipe is mouthwatering good!
