Arctic Char With Lime

Arctic Char With Lime
Author: Ginny Wright
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
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Season arctic char with salt, place in glass baking dish, and sprinkle with lime zest.
  3. Combine lime juice, olive oil, sherry, thyme, and garlic in a small bowl and mix well.
  4. Spread mixture over fish and season with cayenne pepper.
  5. 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.
