Any suggestions for how to cook on the EGG!  Watching my weight, so no frying.  Was thinking abuot a cedar plank.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Grill it on the bone, I think is the best.  Filets are very delicate, if you have the filet, cook on a plank or in a baking pan.  It'll overcook before it unsticks to the grate.

    I like using goat butter on fish.

    Sole can be thin unless you are lucky and near an ocean. I usually stuff them and roll up and grill using parchment or a frogmat. or as nola said whole or half  with bones. IMHO cedar will impart way too much flavour for such a mild fish.

    I agree with the above. Cedar too strong for such a mild fish. Alder? Maybe but I wouldn't use smoke at all. Parchment over veggies sounds good too..

    Probably my favourite way to do fish and shellfish. Justt a hint of smoke gets through and you can mix and match. Once you learn how to do the folds that is. :(

    Steven what do you cook the paper on (stone or grill or?). That is parchment, correct? How about time and temp.

    I usually cook at about 350* Don Toyota.:D  You can do it on a stone or the grill. If you do the en papillote Nola shows it doesn't really matter. Time is about normal cook times with a couple of minutes added for the envelope to get warmed up to steaming temps. If you do fish it's nice to throw in some small shelfish (mussels, pasta clams, periwinkles and/or shrimp) to give a little stock in the package. If the fish is thick I stick a skewer through to make sure it's done.

    Another variation is to use large banana leaves.

    I just gotta reach over my backyard fence.  Banana trees are tough to get rid of.  We had a grove in the back - it was my gopher on caddy shack.   Ended up pouring a slab and building a shop over them.

    In truth I can get them dehydrated or frozen at South American markets. They don't grow real well here for some reason.

    They don't like hard freezes.  We'll get a hard freeze every few years and they'll die.  Or at least look like it for about a week, but then they come back with a vengeance.
