Cedar Plank Roasted Salmon

Ok so normally this would not fall into our budget, but I'm not one to turn down free food, especially salmon fresh from Alaska.

cedar plank
1 tsp dill
½ tsp salt
½ tsp granulated garlic
¼ tsp thyme
one lemon, thinly sliced
a few thin slices yellow onion

soak plank for at least an hour, then lightly dry and sprinkle one side with salt. Place salmon skin side down on salted plank, and sprinkle with spices. Put onions and lemon on top. It should look like this at this point:

Place whole plank on the gas BBQ on high. Have a clean spray bottle filled with water and spray the plank every time you open the BBQ to keep the plank from catching on fire. Cook until the salmon has reached your desired temperature. (131F rare, 138F med, 145F med-well)
