Soak the cedar plank for at least 1 hour in warm water. Keep it soaked longer if time permits. In a shallow dish, stir together the oil, mustard, sugar, onions, and garlic. Place the salmon fillet in the marinade and turn to coat. Cover and marinate for at least 15 minutes, or up to 1 hour. Preheat the grill to medium heat. Place the plank on the grate. The board is ready when it starts to smoke and crackle just a little. Place the salmon fillet onto the plank and discard the marinade. Cover, and grill for about 20 minutes. The fish is done when you can flake it with a fork. It will continue to cook after you remove it from the grill. Slice the salmon into 2-ounce portions. Serve each one with 1 tablespoon warm compote.
