Halibut in Cedar Grilling Papers

Fresh halibut from Alaska was delivered to our house
by our friend Wally who had just gone on a fishing 
trip there.  I had purchased these cedar papers a while
ago and decided the halibut was the perfect way to 
give them a try.

The cedar is cut so thin that after 10 minutes of soaking you can
easily wrap it around a narrow piece of fish and then tie it off
with the enclosed string.  I decided to top mine with olive oil,
lemon pepper, red onion and cilantro.

The smell of the smoking wood was incredible and they 
didn't catch on fire like my planks have done, they just
smoked.  We cooked them about 5 - 7 minutes on each
side depending on the size of the filet.

It definitely made some of the most moist halibut I have ever tried.

We served them in fish tacos.  I am definitely returning to the
grocery store to get some more of these.
They can be found in the grilling departments of some
grocery stores, Home Depot and online.
They also suggest soaking your papers in juice for
added flavor.  We just used water.

I was on the search for cedar planks when I see you posting these!! They may be hard to find locally, but I can find them online anyway. Thanks so much for heads up on these. Wondering... if I soaked in smoke seasoning and water/juice...

Blog world time has been limited lately, and I have missed you who are my favorites. Halibut is my very favorite fish, and we are lucky to get it fresh from the water when we are in Maine. Your recipe is one to add to my list of ways to prepare it.

Fantastic! Thank you Jacqueline for sharing - this will make a different, interesting dinner! Looks amazing!

What a great tip! I'll have to see if we can get them up here - if not, then on my next trip south of the border. I am always a bit nervous about the planks - the papers sound marvelous.
