Arctic char is a great choice for dinner tonight.  Char has a mild, almost salmon like flavour coupled with a firm texture and nice fattiness.  The skin on char is thin and delicate, which, when cooked crisps up nicely in a pan.

Char is a part of the Salmonidae family (which includes salmon and trout).   Our char is sustainably farmed in Iceland and has the Ocean Wise seal of approval.  You can feel good about eating this fish.

Never cooked char before? No problem!  This recipe is quick and easy.
