Soy-Glazed Arctic Char IMAGE Author: Canadian Living Credits: Soy-Glazed Arctic Char IMAGE

Similar in taste and texture to salmon, Arctic char is a common food in Nunavut and across Canada's North. It is typically eaten raw, frozen and dipped in soy sauce, but we've adapted the idea and created a delicious soy-based glaze to go on simple baked char.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 Arctic char fillets (about 1-1/2 lb/675 g total)
  • 2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons liquid honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Method

Place fish, skin side down, on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Whisk together vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, honey and pepper; brush over fish.

Bake in 425?F (220?C) oven until fish flakes easily when tested, 8 to 10 minutes.
