Way too salty! What a way to ruin a nice piece of fish. Followed the recipe as stated except used the BBQ to cook.
Great! Works very well on the grill too. A great little company makes cedar planks more available - picked em up at whole foods - sautee cedar (www.sauteecedar.com) I bought a whole bunch of em because I love the taste - obviously, this recipe is ideal.
