Arctic Char is a cold water fish native to arctic and sub-arctic lakes and coastal waters. No other freshwater fish is found as far north. Arctic Char is closely related to salmon and trout and shares many of its characteristics. Organic Ocean Arctic Char are raised on land in tanks and raceways where pure spring water is drawn from a confined artesian aquifer and held at a constant 8°C. This provides the ideal environment to create an unparalleled consistency in quality and taste. Raised without the use of antibiotics, pesticides or growth hormones, Arctic Char is high in healthy mega-3 fatty acids and has a delicate texture and clean flavour. These cultured Arctic Char are both Ocean Wise "Recommended” and ranked Seafood Watch “Best Choice.”
Arctic Char is easy to prepare and when cooked at it's best, it brings a fresh and distinctive flavour. The high fat content in Charming Arctic Char Portions makes it well suited for high heat cooking like broiling, grilling, and pan searing. And don't throw out the skin! The smooth texture of Arctic Char is perfectly countered by it's crispy skin and pairs well with earthy vegetables for a wonderful meal that's sure to impress.
We order all of the time !!! Only fish we eat ..... We eat this fish 4 dinners a week .... and the portions are perfect !!!
Our Char was delicious. Nothing but salt, pepper and a little butter in hot pan finished in the oven for 4 mins and it was nothing short of spectacular. Our guests loved it.
We had the char this weekend and they were so good! Perfect portion size too. Thank you Organic Ocean, we will for sure be ordering again.
A versatile favourite!
