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



  1. Soak Grilling Plank for at least 15 minutes in hot tap water.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Carefully remove from grill, serve over rice and top with remaining salsa fresca. Enjoy!
