Grilled Cedar Plank Salmon and Halibut with Lemon and Dill

This is such an easy and great way to cook fish.  The cedar plank lends a smoky flavor to the fish.  Since I like Hailbut and my spouse likes salmon,  I made both last night.  The lemon and dill works really well with both kinds of fish.  At the last minute I decided to make to the butterly lemon and dill sauce 
and it was just an added bonus.




The Players! 

Fire up the grill to 350 degrees or the oven.  Sprinkle each fillet with a drizzle of olive oil, dill and lemon zest.  


Place lemon slices on top of fish.  Place the plank on the grill 
or in the oven for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily. 
Remove the fish and plate with a drizzle of the lemon and dill sauce.  




What can I say?  It was amazing!


The Recipe:

Grilled Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon and Halibut with Lemon and Dill

1 six ounce halibut fillet, skinless
1 four ounce salmon fillet, skinless
2 tablespoons fresh dill, minced and divided
2 teaspoons lemon zest 
1/2 lemon, sliced
1/2 lemon juiced
1/2 cup wine
2 tablespoons butter, sliced into chunks
1 cedar plank

Soak cedar plank in water covering top of plank for at least 30 minutes, longer is better.

Fire up the grill to 350 degrees or the oven.  Sprinkle each fillet with a drizzle of olive oil, dill and lemon zest.  Place lemon slices on top of fish.  Place the plank on the grill or in the oven for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily.  

Meanwhile, while fish is cooking, in a small pan add the lemon juice, wine and dill and cook until reduced in half.  Remove from burner and whisk in butter chunks until melted.  

Remove the fish and plate with a drizzle of the lemon and dill sauce.  

Happy Eating!
