Cedar Plank Arctic Char recipe

October 03, 2007

1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup orange juice
1 pound arctic char filet, skin on
1 cedar plank (available in the seafood department of most large grocers)
2 tablespoons olive oil
5 orange slices, for garnish
3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, for garnish

In a bowl large enough to hold the fish, combine the soy sauce, white wine and orange juice. Place the fish in the bowl flesh-side down. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours, turning the fish a couple of times while marinating.

During the final 1 to 2 hours of marinating, soak the cedar plank in water.

Preheat gas grill to 350 degrees or build a charcoal fire.

When the fish has finished marinating, brush one side of the cedar plank lightly with the olive oil. Place the fish skin side down on the plank. Arrange the orange slices over the fish. Sprinkle chives on top.

If using a gas grill, turn off one side. If using charcoal, pile the coals to one side. Place the plank over the cool side of the grill and cook until the fish is pink in the center and flakes easily, about 20 to 30 minutes.


Let fish rest off the heat for 5 minutes. Serve on the plank.

Serves 2.
