Cedar wraps add delicious flavor to grilled halibut
A new and easy way to make halibut– Grilled Halibut in Cedar Wraps. A big thank you to Fire & Flavor for providing me with cedar wraps to experiment with for Cook Love Heal. This is the first recipe I’ve created using the wraps and I thought they were amazing.

Step 2. Tie wrap with kitchen twine (provided with cedar wraps).
Step 3. Place cedar wrapped halibut on grill and cook 4-5 minutes per side depending on thickness.
Step 4. Remove from grill onto a clean plate and garnish with fresh basil.
