Preparation steps

1.
Immerse and soak the cedar plank in salted water for at least 2 hours or overnight; wipe excess water away.
2.
Preheat the grill for indirect grilling and heat to medium-high.
3.
Rinse the halibut under cold running water and pat completely dry with paper towels. Combine the olive oil and lime juice and lightly brush both sides of the fillets. Generously season both sides with salt and pepper. Lay the halibut fillets on the prepared plank and sprinkle cilantro, scallions and jalapenos over the fillets.
4.
Place the cedar plank in the center of the grill grate, away from the heat. Cover the grill and cook for 15 to 25 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through or until desired degree of doneness. Check the plank occasionally and mist with water if edges start to catch fire.
5.
Remove plank from grill, tent lightly with aluminum foil and let rest for about 10 minutes.
6.
For Avocado Chipotle Dipping Sauce:

8.
To Serve:
