Planked Fish

 Ingredients List

  • 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
