Rockfish on a cedar plank is quick and easy for any night that you’re not feeling up to a big project.

Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 2



  • 2 cups of Mixed Color Cherry Tomatoes
  • 2 Shallots, sliced in half
  • 3 Green Onions
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 4 large leaves of Fresh Basil, thinly sliced
  • Salt to taste

Chef's Tip

Mix the tomatoes the day before serving for added flavor.


  1. Soak the grilling planks in water for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven broiler or start the grill.
  3. In a medium bowl, add the tomatoes, shallots, and onions, sprinkle with oil and salt, mix to coat and place on one of the planks. Grill or broil for about 5-7 minutes, until the tomatoes start to burst. Remove from the oven/grill, slice the onions and the shallots, mix all the veggies in a bowl, add basil. Set aside.
  4. Rub the snapper fillets with oil, sprinkle with salt, place on a plank and grill or broil for about 10 minutes.
  5. Remove the snapper from the oven/grill and top with the cherry tomato-basil mix.

*Keep a spray bottle of water handy in case of flare-ups.
