Fish is a favorite in our house. The boys like it so does my husband. Well OK this recipe is more for the grown up crowd rather then for kids, for them I made just some sole without the whisky marinade.
For this marinade the recipe calls for Canadian whisky ( rye) but any whisky will do or if you prefer cognac that will work too. The cedar planks are usually sold in supermarkets ( in the barbecue area) or you can use untreated cedar planks from the local hardware store.
