Icelandic Arctic Char

Icelandic Arctic Char

How to Thaw

Thaw frozen Arctic Char gradually by placing it in the refrigerator overnight. If you have to thaw seafood quicklky, either seal it in a plastic bag and imerse it in cold water, or - if the food will be cooked immediately thereafter - microwave it on the "defrost" setting and stop the defraust cycle while the fish is still icy but pliable. Most seafood should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees.

Rich, Buttery and Delicately Flakey

Arctic Char has a rich buttery taste, due to its high fat content, closely comparable to a sockeye salmon. Its flavor profile falls between trout and salmon, with flesh that ranges from light pink to deep red. Its skin is thin and delicate, making it easy to crisp. Overall, it’s a versatile fish that lends itself well to sautéing, baking, or grilling - making it perfect for a variety of delicious seafood recipes.
