Cedar Plank Trout with Charred Tomato Butter

This cedar plank fish recipe is super easy to make and is a great healthy lunch or dinner option for seafood lovers! I used trout for this recipe and topped it off with an amazing tomato butter.

Cedar planks are a great way to add a smoky flavor to your food but it also serves as a great non-stick cooking tool.

Cedar Plank Fish Cooking Tips:

You can find cedar plank at a home ware store or near the seafood department of your local grocery store. Soak cedar plank 2 hours before using. I place a can of vegetables on top to keep the plank submerged.

When I buy my trout, they come butterflied, meaning two filets.

The charred tomatoes will release their juices, drain off access juices before mixing with butter.

Can you make ahead?
