Instructions

Prepare plank by soaking it in water at least 1 hour.

For the salsa, combine cilantro, mint, dill, honey, zest, and lime juice.

Combine honeydew, cantaloupe, and watermelon in a bowl; sprinkle with chili powder and toss gently with herb mixture. Season salsa with salt and pepper flakes.

Prepare grill for two-zone grilling, heating one side to high and the other side to medium.

Place soaked plank over high heat until it smolders and crackles, about 3 minutes. Transfer plank to medium heat.

For the salmon, combine brown sugar, oil, salt, pepper flakes, thyme, and granulated garlic. Press rub into salmon.

Arrange salmon, skin side down, on plank. Cook salmon, covered, until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 145°, 8–12 minutes. (Check periodically to make sure the plank hasn't caught fire; if it does, spritz it with water to douse the flame.)

Serve salmon with melon salsa.

Gently toss the melon with the herb mixture so the fruit doesn't break down too much.
