Have the FISH dealer split the SHAD for planking. Soak the plank in cold water for two hours and then place the FISH on the plank, and brush it with lemon juice. Place in the lowest part of the broiler of the gas range. Begin to baste with cold water after the FISH has been in the oven for twelve minutes. Allow thirty minutes for planking a two and one-half pound SHAD.
