Arctic char, also called alpine trout or sea trout, is a member of the Salmonidae family. If you like salmon and trout, you have to try arctic char. Arctic char has a buttery and mild flavor that works well for all palates. A chef favorite for its versatility, char can be grilled, broiled, poached, smoked, or pan-fried. Being farm-raised, arctic char is available all year round and will quickly become a family favorite.
