How to Thaw
Thaw frozen Arctic Char gradually by placing it in the refrigerator overnight. If you have to thaw seafood quickly, either seal it in a plastic bag and immerse it in cold water, or - if the food will be cooked immediately thereafter - microwave it on the "defrost" setting and stop the defrost cycle while the fish is still icy but pliable. Most seafood should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
Sustainably Raised Arctic Char
Found in the deep and icy waters of glacial lakes and arctic coastal waters, Arctic Char is closely related to both salmon and trout — ranging from a light pink to deep red in color, with a mild, buttery taste and silky-smooth texture. Well-suited for aquaculture, Arctic Char is both delicious and sustainable, a truly versatile fish that’s gaining in popularity around the world. Learn more about this ASC-certified fish here.
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.

What Raised Right Means to Crowd Cow
No Unnecessary Antibiotics
Animal welfare is of utmost importance to us, and we only work with farms and producers that provide humane and clean living environments for their livestock. Better living conditions (more space to roam, access to clean water and shelter, etc.) mean animals are naturally healthier — so antibiotics simply aren't necessary. In the rare cases where an animal gets sick or requires medical attention, antibiotics are only used therapeutically — never to promote growth or to "proactively" prevent diseases.
No Added Hormones
We believe animals should develop at their own pace — 100% free of artificial growth hormones. In other markets, animals are not typically provided enough space to build up their muscle, so hormones are given to promote growth. In contrast, our farms take the extra time, care, and effort to allow their animals to grow the way nature intended, gaining weight naturally. This translates to not only the safety and health of the animals, but also the premium quality of our products.
Personally Known & Taste-Tested
We have strong relationships with each producer we work with and have done our homework to ensure they meet our high standards. We only supply meat and seafood that we'd put on our own tables — a product that's delicious and raised ethically, cleanly, and sustainably — always taste-tested by experts and better than anything you can find in your grocery store.
