Feature Fish: Fresh Arctic Char Fillets

Matt Caudle

Description

Our fresh Arctic Char is flown in multiple time per week directly from Iceland. Arctic char is most commonly sold in skin-on, boneless fillets approx 12-16oz. in size. Arctic Char is also available in the whole form and is sold “dressed” (Head on and gutted). Arctic Char is a Farm-Raised (Aquacultured) fish that is Ocean Wise recommended for sustainable farming methods.

Flavour Profile
Char has a rich flavour that falls between an Atlantic Salmon and Rainbow Trout in intensity. Could be described as a milder, sweeter tasting trout. Char has a moderate fat content comparable to a leaner salmon like Sockeye. Char has a semi-firm, flaky texture and is great pan-fried, poached, baked or grilled.
