Cedar Plank Smoked Rockfish

Recommended Posts

I took a recipe I had for cedar plank smoked salmon and altered it a little for rockfish. If you give it a try, I promise you'll like.

 

2 lbs Rockfish filets, skin on

2 - Cedar planks, soaked overnight

Marinade

 

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp crushed rosemary ( i like fresh, but dry will work as well)

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 stp fresh crushed black pepper

2 cloves fresh garlic (chopped or pressed)

 

Mix all ingredients above and marinade fish for 1 - 2 hours.

 

Place plank on grill (high) for 5 minutes. Place rockfish (skin side down) on plank, spoon on a little of the marinade and cook on grill (med-low) for 15 minutes or so, depending on the thickness of the filets.

 

It's good to keep a spray bottle handy in case you're plank catches fire (rarely happens if you soak overnight), but it gives me a good excuse to stand guard by the grill with a cold Sierra Nevada Pale Ale for a bit.

 

Hope you enjoy.
