Crisp-Skinned Arctic Char

Crisp-Skinned Arctic Char

Caudle's Catch Seafood Online


  • 2-3 tbsp Olive oil
  • 4 5oz Skin-on Arctic Char fillets
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 Lemon wedges


  1. Heat the oil in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet or nonstick pan over medium-low heat.
  2. Season the fish well with salt and pepper. Cook, skin side down and undisturbed, for 7 minutes. The fillets will cook from the bottom up so that the flesh stays moist while the skin gets so crisp that it crackles; if the skin becomes crisp before the top of the fish finishes cooking (it should look just opaque), flip it over and cook very briefly to finish.
  3. Serve with a lemon wedge.
