Fish on a Plank

Fish on a Plank

"The delicate flavors of the fish are richly enhanced by the sweet tang of the wood planks. The mango salsa gives it a spicy flair. Just about any fish will work--I have used tilapia and it turns out well. This is great served with rice pilaf."

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the mangos, bell pepper, green onion, cilantro and jalapeno pepper. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and lime juice. Stir together then cover and refrigerate until serving to blend the flavors.
  2. Soak the plank in water for at least 2 hours, longer if possible. Place the mahi mahi fillets in a shallow dish and coat with teriyaki sauce. Cover, and marinate for at least 1 hour.
  3. Prepare a grill for indirect heat. If using charcoal, arrange and light coals under one half of the grill. Sprinkle lemon juice over the fish fillets and season with chipotle seasoning, red pepper flakes and hot pepper sauce. Place the fillets on the plank.
  4. Place the plank on the grill over direct heat. Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Move the plank with the fish over to indirect heat (the cooler part of the grill), cover and cook for 10 more minutes or until fish can be flaked with a fork. Top fillets with mango salsa and serve hot.

One of my all-time favorites. I used Tilapia for it. So many flavors - nice and spicy. Salsa was so good! This was rated a 10 by my whole family. Thanks for sharing this one!

I used Tilipia instead of Mahi Mahi, the fish was very mild and sweet. I did not have a ceder plank so I soaked apple wood chips and set them in a aluminum pan to lightly smoke the fillets. The ...

VERY GOOD!!!! My husband and I usually don't like fish but loved this. We used Mahi Mahi and used cedar planks. We didn't use the hot pepper oil and it was just spicy enough. Will make again.

This was excellent, my fiance who hates fish even loved it. I made it as my first attempt to cook/eat mahi mahi and I was completely impressed. I was however forced to change a couple things, I...

Made it tilapia, delicious!

This was the BEST fish I've ever had!

This is a great recipe. I always have leftovers of the mango salsa so I take it to work to share & everyone raves about it. If you don't have chipotle seasoning you can always used smoked paprik...
