I love a good fish recipe any time of the year but the summer is my favorite because in the summer I get to enjoy fresh caught fish. There is nothing better! Last summer I shared one of my favorite styles of cooking fish here and today I’ve got a new recipe for you that uses the grill.

I caught this beauty on Memorial Day weekend. We went night fishing on a bridge and as soon as I dropped my line in the water I hooked’em. I have been wanting to try grilling a whole fish and since this one fit my cedar plank perfectly I figured I would give it a try.

This is as simple as it gets when it comes to cooking fish. Once the fish is cleaned you stuff it with fresh lemon slices and fresh parsley. Then I like to season the inside with some garlic powder, paprika, sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. I also rub olive oil on the top of the fish. It’s light and simple and brings out the fresh flavor of the fish. This time I grilled my fish on a cedar plank over an open flame.

The first step is preparing your cedar plank by soaking it in water for several hours. I also like to rub oil on the plank. Then start up the grill and heat it to a medium heat. Place the whole fish on your pre-soaked and oiled plank then place the planks over indirect heat . Depending on the type of fish and thickness cooking time will vary. You can also cook fillets like this and just place the lemon underneath and or on top depending on how lemony you like it. Grill the fish with the cover down for 10-15 mins or until the fish reaches an internal temperature of 120 degrees F.

You can’t beat the presentation of a whole fish. Some eat the head, personally I don’t. If having the head on it creeps you out, just remove it before you grill it.
