How to Grill Salmon

Have you looked at those wooden planks stacked in the seafood section at your market and wondered how to grill salmon with them? Turns out, it's an easy way to add a smoky flavor to a simple salmon fillet.

For roux, in a large skillet heat the 1/3 cup oil over medium heat for 3 minutes. Gradually stir or whisk in the flour until smooth. Cook over medium-low heat about 20 minutes or until the mixture is dark reddish brown (chocolate brown), stirring frequently.
Add onion, celery, and sweet pepper; cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in green onion, parsley, and garlic. Add chicken broth all at once, stirring to combine. Stir in seasoned salt and bay leaf.
Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Add crawfish and cook until warmed through (if using shrimp, cook until shrimp is opaque). Discard bay leaf. Serve over rice.
