We were at The Art Market in Calgary before Christmas and I came upon B.C. Coastal Grilling Planks and met the owner Donna Livelton. She was lovely enough to give me a package of Cedar Cooking Wraps to try, so we did and they are fantastic. Such a cool idea. You take a little cedar wrap and soak it for 30 min. then place seafood, veggies, cheeses etc. inside that have been seasoned with her fabulous spice rub. Bake in the oven or grill and WOW are these great!! The spice rub is perfect and the subtle cedar flavor is fantastic. These will blow your company away and they are so very easy to use. I think you could make them slightly ahead of time too and keep them under a damp cloth in the refrigerator ready to go.
Try these for your next dinner party, you will be amazed how wonderful they are. Order them from BC Coastal Grilling Planks. They also have other fine rubs and cedar planks that you will love.
- Cedar Wraps with spice rub

- Lemon, parsley and green onion for garnish
- Soak the cedar wrap for 30 min. Holding the wraps down with a glass to keep submerged. Mix two parts olive oil with one part spice rub. Toss shrimp with the oil mixture. Place inside the soaked cedar wrap. Tie up with soaked kitchen twine, corn husk or green onion.
- Preheat grill or oven to 400F. If grilling turn heat down to low and grill for 2-3 min. per side or more until done. If using the oven turn oven down to 350F, place the wraps on a cookie sheet in the middle of the oven and bake for 3 min., turn over and bake for 2-3 min. more or until done. Remove from oven and serve with garnishes.
