We had this last night and it was some of the best fish I have ever had! We couldn't find the 'grill-thingy' for fish so we used a couple of cedar planks. Even without soaking the planks it worked perfectly. It was served with grilled zucchini and basmati rice. I will make this often. Thanx! Update: I have mad this more times than I can count. I do use a shortcut and but prepared pico de gallo and sometimes use a mango salsa. And I always use the cedar planks. I've used all sorts of firm white fish too. Tonight it is chilean sea bass!

This was a very good meal. The salsa on top was the perfect touch. I will make this again

Wow!!! This turned out so wonderful. My husband loves mango salsa so I made some of that also and it made it even better. I wish I could give it more stars. Great summer recipe. This one goes in the books.
