Have you ever used cedar planks to grill fish? If not…please try this ASAP!!
Last night Joe and I had such an awesome dinner, and it was mostly due to these special things.
We picked up this pack of Cedar planks at Costco. I think they were $10 for 6 planks. I highly recommend you look for them at Costco- we saw them for $10 for only 2 or 3 planks at the grocery store. (RIP OFF ALERT!)
The other thing you need to know, is that on the night you’ll make the fish, you need to soak the plank in water for a few hours to make sure they don’t go up in flames on the grill.
For our dinner we placed some fresh rainbow trout fillets on the planks- topped them with salt and pepper and then brushed them with some melted butter mixed with fresh chopped parsley, a few dashes of garlic powder, and the juice and zest of 1/2 a lemon. (Sorry I didn’t take in process pictures!)
After that, just place the planks on a medium-high grill for about 8-10 minutes.
(I wish I got a picture of it outside, but we were so hungry that I barely even got this one (and that little piece taken out was done by me!)) We threw some garden tomatoes on the plank too to see what would happen. (They were too smoky for me!)
I paired my fish with roasted asparagus with olive oil and lemon and some brown rice.
A delicious dinner I highly recommend you try while it’s still grilling season!
