Yeah, I do. In fact I put the cooking side down for a couple of minutes, then oil it lightly when I turn it. Then let it heat about 4 or 5 minutes. I also oil the skin on the fish too.
The shorter the cook time on something, the longer I preheat the plank. For something like brie, I might let it go 10 minutes.
I use hickory planks on things like pork chops or tenderloins, and don't preheat them hardly at all as it takes 30 or 40 minutes for the whole cook.
