Prep: 5 min + 4hr soak / Cook Time: 15 Minutes / Servings: 1-2

There’s nothing like grilling a fresh piece of fish on the barbecue. But have you ever done it on a cedar plank? The smokey flavour of the wood enhances the delicate taste of the trout that is dressed in honey and fresh herbs. A bonus – you don’t have to flip the fish. This recipe is ridiculously easy, for what seems to be a super fancy dish! Serve alongside grilled vegetables and rice or potatoes!


  • 1 rainbow trout fillet
  • 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill – chopped
  • 1 lemon – sliced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cedar plank


Step 1: Soak the cedar plank for 4 hours before you are ready to use

Step 2: Rinse and pat down the trout with a paper towel until dry. Gently sprinkle with salt and spread honey over the trout. Sprinkle chopped dill and top with lemon slices

Step 3: Preheat grill to a medium heat. Once grill is heated place the cedar plank on the grill to dry off excess water. Flip the plank and place the dressed trout on top, cover the lid of the grill and cook for about 15 minutes. There is a chance the plank will catch on fire – have a spray bottle of water ready! Be sure not to overcook! The fish should be opaque and flakey.

Step 4: Remove plank from bbq, squeeze fresh lemon and enjoy immediately! Serve alongside fresh grilled vegetables and rice or potatoes!
