Arctic Char Recipe with Grilled Pear
I love Arctic Char! It is slightly milder in taste than wild salmon and is reminiscent of trout. It is just delightful! Nutritionally, it is superb: it's a great source of protein and is rich in omega-3 healthy fatty acids. It is also a sustainable fish and is therefore a responsible choice for our planet! This is such a simple recipe that involves broiling the fish with a little drizzle of fresh lemon juice and olive oil, that's it! The sliced grilled pear is a nice addition to make this a perfect elegant dish over mixed greens and walnuts. What a perfect summer dish all in one plate…and you know how much I love that!
