This morning on CBC's Weekend Morning Show - Arctic Char and toasted Nori Sheets

This morning I had the pleasure of presenting some easy and delicious recipe ideas for CBC's Weekend Morning Show with Kerän Sanders. We have gorgeous Arctic Char produced here in Manitoba with organic feed in clean waters. The results are a beautiful fish that is so moist and buttery AND sustainable. It is exclusively available at Gimli Fish.

This recipe is so easy and adaptable for individual tastes.

Herb baked Arctic Char
1 fillet Arctic Char
1 bunch Cilantro, finely chopped
1 bunch Chives, finely chopped
zest of 1 lemon
drizzle good olive oil
pinch each of sea salt and black pepper

Preheat oven to 350ºF and place Arctic Char Fillet on a pan. In a bowl, mix up remaining ingredients and spread over the fillet. Bake from 10 - 20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillet. Serve immediately. Try with rice or sweet potato and salad with a vinaigrette.


The toasted Nori sheets are also exceptionally easy to prepare and are addictive as potato chips (crisps). Brush the Nori sheet with a bit of sesame oil and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt. Place in the toaster oven and toast until it starts to brown or curl up. Remove and break or cut into pieces.

A beautiful new blog template -- I love it! And I want this fish -- my fish education keeps growing and forcing me to be choosier and choosier.

I'll have to figure out how to send you some of this Arctic Char. I'll talk with my fish monger on Monday. It is so buttery, moist and delicate.
