I haven’t posted a fish/seafood recipe in a while, mainly because we are not very passionate about it and my personal interest in fish goes only as far as canned tuna. Well not really but looking to my three seafood recipes, two with salmon and one with basa (it was cheap), you get the idea… and I almost forgot about my tuna salad recipe which I love. I am not crazy about fish but every once in while a recipe catches my eye or some idea pops into my head and I start making my way into the kitchen, where I usually scare the heck out of my wife since she’s always there, cooking something… but that’s a funny story for some other time.
This time I got excited by fish cooked on a plank which I must sadly admit, I never tried until today. The whole idea of cooking fish on a plank kinda seems a bit too dangerous to me but more important is the fact that smoked fish doesn’t usually agree with my stomach so we try to avoid one another. Cooking fish on a plank however, is the easiest way there is, you just season the fish with whatever you like then throw it on a ½ inch plank and wait for 20 minutes. The end result is very good, has nothing to do with normal smoked fish that you can find at the grocery store, the aroma and smoky taste are so subtle that by the time you ask yourself “how the…” and “what the…”, the fish is gone. Even my dog loved it, but then again, she loves any kind of food lately.
