  1. Place the plank on the grill and preheat the grill to medium heat.
  2. Rub the oil evenly over the salmon filets. Season them evenly with salt and pepper.
  3. Carefully open the grill (when the plank is ready, it should smoke and it may crackle; if it begins to warp, flip it over and let it settle). Set the salmon filets side by side on the plank, not touching. Grill for about 6 minutes. Using a spatula, gently loosen the filets (they make stick slightly) and flip them. Grill them 4-6 minutes more, or until the salmon is cooked to your liking. Serve immediately.
