Seared Arctic Char w/ Warm Mango-Lime Salsa, Cayenne Spiced Peanuts & Japanese Style BBQ Sauce

Updated: Apr 8, 2021

This recipe is adapted from the April 2009 issue of Coastal Living Magazine. Arctic Char is a delicious fish from the family Salmonidae which includes Salmon and Trout. The recipe was pretty good but we found that with the addition of some chopped nuts for crunch and Bachan's Japanese BBQ Sauce for additional zest, sweetness and spiciness it becomes a dish that works for every night, special nights and even parties (we're waiting to be able to go back to parties!). Preparation is easy and the sauce can be done ahead of time. Do that and you can have dinner ready in less than 10 minutes!

It can't be said too often that overcooked fish is not a good thing. We tend to eat ours a bit more on the rare side and will describe how we cook it. Take care when cooking and realize that it will continue to cook after it is removed from the pan.
