Pan Fried Arctic Charr with Almonds and Lemon Butter
Look out for the Arctic charr sustainably farmed at Cloonacool when making this dish, which is taken from ‘From Tide To Table’ (Epicure €25): nothing is added to the fish farming process except food and oxygen - no chemicals, antibiotics, or colourings of any kind are used. This recipe also works well with many other fish, such as halibut, trout, lemon sole or plaice.
Arctic Charr is pan fried in the traditional way and basted with golden almonds and lemon butter sauce. The crunchy almonds perfectly complement the succulent fish……Heavenly.
