Oh My Arctic Char!

Rated as 4.7 out of 5 Stars

"I'm a huge fish fan and I'm always looking for new ways to make fish. I couldn't find any recipe that sounded tasty on the net for arctic char so I decided to try my cooking talent and come up with my own recipe. My husband and I couldn't believe how delicious this turned out, all of the flavors balanced perfectly. He wasn't hungry that night and ended up eating majority of the fish, haha! This recipe will not disappoint."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking dish with aluminum foil.
  2. Season arctic char with salt, place in prepared baking dish, and sprinkle with lime zest.
  3. Combine lime juice, olive oil, sherry, rosemary, and garlic in a food processor; pulse until garlic is finely chopped. Spread mixture over fish and season with black pepper and cayenne pepper.
  4. 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.

My family really enjoyed the arctic char (a whole fish), less fishy than salmon and the marinade. I did modify it a bit to use fresh tarragon instead of rosemary. I was afraid the lime juice w...

The rosemary was slightly overpowering to me. I would use just a little less than called for.
