Oh My Arctic Char!

Recipe by  

"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.

Fantastic! My first time cooking Arctic Char and I am now a fan :) Thanks for sharing your talent and love of cooking!!

This was GOOD! New to Arctic Char, I tried your recipe because of your tagline that you couldn't find anything that sounded good enough online so you just made up your own. This is my usual "M/O". I used 2T of lemon juice (husband hates lime...!?) and 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary (didn't have fresh) but otherwise followed exactly. Ideal internal temp "they" say is 140, so, I usually go a hair LESS (138 in this case would be ideal, think). Temperature was 125 at 12 minutes; 133 at 17 minutes and 144 at 22 minutes; so while it WAS *awesome* (flavor/seasoning) and I give it 5 stars, next time I will leave it in for 20 min. @ 400 and broil for the last 2 minutes. FYI, I had three good size filets on parchment in a glass baking dish. (it makes a difference!) Beautiful fish!! Thank you so much, and I hope this review helps others. It may be that the foil you use, acts as a heat conductor and cooks it faster than it does on parchment. Thanks again...GREAT fish.

I used less of everything and loved it! 1/8c evoo, 1/8c sherry, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, more garlic, much less fresh rosemary and it was so light and tasty. Will make this all the time! Thank you.

I followed the recipe except used dry white wine instead of the sherry. I thought it was very good but my husband thought there was to much rosemary. If I make it again I will cut down on the rosemary.

We followed this recipe to the letter and it was quite tasty. The whole house smelled good while we waited for the timer. We will be sure to keep it handy for the next time we spot Char at the store!

This dish came out really good, i used on the stove top for quickness; i seared the fish in olive oil, seasoned fish with salt and pepper, and used garlic powder, and garlic salt, in the wine marinade. Tossed the marinade in with the fish, while it was searing, only took about 3-5 minutes, instead of in the oven. scrumpy delish!

This was so easy and so flavorful! I made it exactly as written. The lime added a distinctive flavor. I'll be making this again a lot!
