Arctic char is a close cousin of the salmon, with a much milder and sophisticated flavor. It might be too pricey and hard to find when not in season depending where you live, so feel free to substitute salmon. This is a delicious, light, and satisfying meal.

Was searching for a recipe for grilled char. This looked easy and healthy so decided to give it a try. As hoped for it was simple and easy and more importantly very tasty. The only substantive comment I would make is that the instructions say to start cooking the arctic char with the skin face up. Based on many other recipes I also read before picking this one all the others started with the skin face down and that is how I prepared it. Another thing: I decided not to drizzle the recommended 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil over the greens after everything was done. I didn't feel it needed it. One last thing: I did not have mango on hand but the strawberries and roasted pecans were delicious on their own along with the char. Winner for a quick easy healthy and tasty way to prepared grilled arctic char Read More

Very easy to make delicious! Added a chipotle mango seasoning to the fish before frying. Added a little fresh Tyme and Tarragon to top off ghe salad and a tbs of the leftover lemon sauce to top the fish. Read More
