Preheat your grill to medium heat.
Place the soaked grilling planks on the grill grates and close the lid. Allow the planks to preheat for about 5 minutes until they start to lightly smoke.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, paprika, garlic powder, dried dill, Kosher salt, and black pepper to create a marinade.
Place the salmon filets in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the filets, making sure they are evenly coated. Allow the salmon to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to infuse the flavors.
While the salmon is marinating, prepare the lemon dill sauce. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, fresh lemon juice, chopped dill, Dijon mustard, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and refrigerate until serving.
Once the planks are lightly smoking, place the marinated salmon filets on the preheated grilling planks, skin-side down. Close the lid of the grill and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and easily flakes with a fork. The grilling time may vary depending on the thickness of the filets.
Carefully remove the cooked salmon filets from the grilling planks using a spatula.
Serve the grilled salmon filets hot, garnished with fresh dill sprigs, and accompanied by the lemon dill sauce. Pair it with your favorite sides and enjoy the smoky, flavorful experience of this Kosher grilled salmon recipe.
Soaking the grilling planks in water helps prevent them from burning and adds a subtle smoky flavor to the salmon.
Experiment with different wood types for unique smoky flavors. Cedar and alder are popular choices for salmon.
For an extra burst of flavor, you can add a sprinkle of lemon.
