I got this in my email this morning as the Daily Dish, and since we've had planks in the cupboard for months and my husband just bought grouper from the Freezer-Meat Guy (door-to-door frozen meat and seafood saleman), I decided to try this recipe on the grouper. I mixed the marinade in a ziplock bag with the fish and let it sit for about 20-25 minutes. The wood soaked for at least 2 hours. Let me tell you... this was wonderful. Tender, flavourful but not overpowering that of the fish itself, definitely in the "to make again" list. I had two different brands of cedar planks to feed my whole family, and so the taste was different for each plank, just so you know: if you don't like this the first time around, change the wood, you might be pleasantly surprised. As it was, both versions were lovely, but still quite different, as one was more woodsy and the other gained a sweetness that didn't come from the marinade. My sons can be picky eaters, but as it was, my oldest polished his plate faster than his parents did. Highly recommend.
