Alder Planked Fish: Tropical Style

This recipe was created in Kona, HI. If you can't get a hold of some of the more exotic ingredients feel free to substitute local ingredients.


  • Alder Grilling Plank
  • 2 Ono or swordfish steaks
  • 1 bunch of cilantro
  • 1 c. rice, steamed
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • ½ c. fresh mango, diced
  • ½ c. assorted berries- I used black cap raspberries and Suriname cherry
  • Sea salt, and a squeeze or two of lime



First: Soak Grilling Plank for at least 15 minutes in hot tap water.

Next: Preheat grill to medium heat, place soaked alder plank on grill and add pineapple rounds. Close lid and allow to smoke and smolder for 5 to 7 minutes.

Then: Add fillets on top of pineapple rounds, sprinkle sea salt atop fish, and scoop half of the salsa fresca on top. Allow fish to grill for 10-12 minute.

Finally: Carefully remove from grill, serve over rice and top with remaining salsa fresca. And enjoy!
