Got the idea from the fish monger at our local farmers market and a kitchen store that had ceder cooking planks on sale. I made the first batch for my wife and I. Made some changes to the 1st recipe and tried it again with friends. Now all of my friends who tried them have gone out and bought ceder planks.
