GRILLING PAPERS

BEYOND CEDAR PLANKS

Picked up a package of cedar grilling papers the other day (made by Fire & Flavor Grilling and sold at select grill stores and Whole Foods). First, I soaked the papers in cold water to make them pliable and to slow down the rate of combustion. Then I seasoned halibut fillets with homemade pesto and tied them in the grilling papers. (Soak your butcher’s string in water, too.)

Grilled the halibut on a hot grate long enough to cook the fish and char the cedar, which imparted an incredible cedar smoke flavor.

Here are the cedar packages with a simple fresh herb salad.

The grilling papers not only lent a haunting flavor to the fish, but kept it moist, too.
