Cook: 25 minutes
2 cedar planks, soaked in water at least 2 hours
1 lb wild trout filets, cut in four pieces
1-2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

1 cup fresh cilantro (leaves and stems)
1 jalapeno, stemmed and seeded
Juice of 1 lime
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1. Set half the grill to medium-high heat.
2. Drain the cedar planks and arrange the trout filets, skin side down, on top. Brush with sesame oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on the grill on the opposite side of the heat source, cover, and cook 20-25 minutes until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove and set aside.
