To submit a Artic Char recipe

Blackened Artic Char

2 lbs. Artic Char
4 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. Cajun spices

Fillet the Char (fresh or thawed) about 25 mm thick (1-1/2"). Don't be afraid to substitute trout, perch, shrimp, or any firm-fleshed seafood or fish for the char. Melt butter in a cast-iron or heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium high heat. Add Cajun spice and heat thoroughly. Place fillets in pan. Squeeze juice of one lemon into pan. Cook fish for about 5 minutes on each side. Serve with remaining lemon wedges and pan drippings. Makes 2 servings.

Grilled Artic Char

2 six ounce portions artic char
1oz. olive oil

Slaw Recipe
1/4 Cup Grilled corn off the cob
1/4 Cup chopped ripe tomatoes
1/4 Cup chopped artichokes (canned)
1/4 Cup chopped green onions
1 Cup green cabbage sliced thin
1 Cup red cabbage sliced thin
1 Cup red vinager
1/4 Cup olive oil
1/4 Cup sugar
1/4 Cup orange preserves

Brush the Artic Char with oil, salt and pepper. Make sure the grill is hot first, then either spray or brush oil on the grill. Set the fish on the heat. Cook each side of the fish for about 8-10 minutes per side. For the slaw, mix all the above ingredients in a mixing bowl. It is best to mix the slaw a few hours before and then refridgerate. This will allow for maximum flavors. To set the plate put the slaw down first using a spoon, this allows the dressing from the slaw to be used as the sauce for the fish. Then set the fish atop of the slaw. Makes 2 servings.
