Planked fish

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient

You will need some wood shingles. You can get them at any hardware store. Make sure they are cedar or pecan or some other hardwood. Not pine or something that will give the fish a turpentine taste. Get one for every serving planned. And extra for later. Soak the shingles in water for a couple of hours. I recommend using fish fillets for this recipe as they will cook more evenly. Prepare the fish fillets, using whatever spices you like, salt and pepper.

Remove the shingles from the water and pat dry. Oil one side lightly in the center where the fish will go. Place one piece of fish in the center of each shingle. Then you will place the whole shingle, fish and all on a hot grill or over a charcoal fire close enough to the heat that the plank will smoke. It is best to have a heat source with a cover. Leave the plank on the heat source long enough for the fish to cook, until it flakes easily. The plank will start to char on the bottom and edges, this is what smokes the fish while it cooks, this is ok. Serve the fish on the plank. This recipe is great for the outdoors where a homemade camp "oven" can be used, no plates necessary and totally biodegradable. Walt MM Food love, Sandi
