    Cedar grilled sea bass - serves 4

    1 cedar plank - fish sized
    1 sea bass - scaled and cleaned
    kosher salt
    olive oil
    4 large basil leaves
    thinly sliced tomato
    thinly sliced red onion
    thinly sliced lemon
    kitchen twine
    squirt bottle filled with water

    Soak planks in salt water 5 hr. Heat grill to HIGH. Rinse fish, pat dry. Sprinkle inside with olive oil, kosher salt. Line inside of the fish with basil leaves, then layer the sliced tomato, onion, lemon. Salt outside of fish, tie it up with twine - roast style. Lay it on plank. Lay plank/fish on grill and lower cover. You are going to want to check every couple of minutes JUST in case the plank isn't completely soaked - coals and smoke are GOOD, a flaming plank is BAD. That's where the squirt bottle comes in. You might squirt bottom part of plank a couple times in either case to make it smoke up a bit. The smoke adds a TON of great flavor. When plank is blackened and fish is toasty brown on the "up" side, you're done! Cut twine and serve.

    Thank you for some yummy-looking recipes! I've bought the cedar planks that they sell in the stores; pricey and their usage-time is very limited. I'm going to have to try these.
