Salmon or Tuna Steaks (4) Scale this recipe as necessary

Make a marinade from:
1/2 cup olive oil
6 tbsp. white vinegar
4 tsp. basil
4 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. minced garlic
4 tsp. thyme
4 tsp. salt
4 tsp. black pepper


Marinate the fish for a few hours.

While marinating, soak planks under water.

Warm up grill (medium heat).
Place planks on grill, place fish on planks.
Cover grill.
Baste fish occassionally while cooking.
Depending on thickness of fish the cooking should take about 10 - 15 minutes.
Fish will flake easily when done.

Do NOT marinate fish. When 1/2 cooked (on plank of course)
start basting with the dressing / tomatoe mixture.
