Arctic Char With Lime
A simple recipe for arctic char that will not disappoint. Arctic char is considered a good substitute for farm-raised salmon because it has a more delicate texture and clean, mild flavor. It tends to be fairly expensive because it’s not widely available. A special once-in-a-while treat!
- 1 ten-ounce fillet arctic char.
- 1 pinch sea salt to taste
- 1 lime, zested and juiced
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup sherry wine
- 1-2 teaspoons minced thyme leaves
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper or more to taste
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Season arctic char with salt, place in glass baking dish, and sprinkle with lime zest.
- Combine lime juice, olive oil, sherry, thyme, and garlic in a small bowl and mix well.
- Spread mixture over fish and season with cayenne pepper.
- Bake in the preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, 12 to 15 minutes, basting with pan juices about halfway through. When the fish is close to being cooked, switch the oven to broil for remaining two minutes or until browned.
