SERVES: 4 TOTAL TIME: 1 hour 15 minutes 


For the Salmon

  • 1 large BC Steelhead Salmon fillet
  • 2 tbsp Asada Rub (or your favourite seasoning)
  • 1 cedar plank (soaked in water for at least 1 hour)

For the Salmon Mixture

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp capers, drained
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • Juice of 1 grilled lemon
  • 1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced

For the Tostadas


  1. Prepare the Grill:
    • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (about 400°F / 200°C). Ensure your cedar plank has been soaked in water for at least an hour to prevent burning.
  2. Season the Salmon:
    • Pat the salmon fillet dry with paper towels.
    • Generously rub the salmon with the Asada Rub on all sides.
  3. Grill the Salmon:
    • Place the soaked cedar plank on the hot grill and close the lid. Let it heat up for about 3-4 minutes.
    • Once the plank starts to smoke, carefully place the seasoned salmon on the plank.
    • Close the grill lid and cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until the salmon is fully cooked and flakes easily with a fork.
  4. Prepare the Salmon Mixture:
    • Remove the salmon from the grill and let it cool slightly. Using two forks, flake the salmon into a large bowl.
    • Add the mayonnaise, capers, green onions, fresh dill, grilled lemon juice, and cucumber slices. Mix until well combined.
  5. Assemble the Tostadas:
    • Lightly grill the corn tostadas on the grill for about 1-2 minutes per side until they are warm and slightly charred.
    • Spoon the salmon mixture onto each tostada.
  6. Add the Finishing Touches:
