Hey guys, last night I tried this for the first time and it was some of the best fish I have ever made! The kids got me some of those grilling planks and this seasoning you can buy at Williams Sonoma called "Potlatch seasoning" for Father's Day.

You soak the planks over night, I put the fish on them (some nice trout from Spinney and 11-mile!), then sprinkle on some of that Potlatch stuff and that's it!! The directions say to keep the skin on but I already had them filleted and de-boned. So I just cut foil out around the fillets.

If you don't want to spend for the planks, I would still consider buying some of those spices... They are the BEST I've ever tried!

for any of you that have fished the atlantic i have heard that this plank method works really well on those strong flavored blue fish only when you are done cooking you pitch the fish and eat the plank it tastes better...

I tried the cedar, also for the forst time last weekend. Have'nt had much luck lately so bought a 3-1/2 # salmon filet from Safeway. I soaked the filet in Orange juice for about an hour, made a rub out of brown sugar, salt, and a touch of garlic powder. I just got done building a cedar fence and cut 2 pieces about 20" long, and soaked them in water. Put the filet on the cedar, applied the rub and put it on the grill med. heat for about 25 minutes. The fish was great.

Bluefish? Strong flavored? Whoa!!!!
Bluefish have the sweetest most mild flavored meat you have ever tasted. Sort of like a salt water crappie with teeth. Any time you want to turn down a chance for some bluefish.... give 'em to me!
