The Arctic Char is a cold-water fish that is closely related to both salmon and lake trout. They provide a rich taste with a flavor between trout and salmon. The flesh colors ranges from a light pink to a deep red. This type of fish is easily prepared and at its best when simply cooked giving it the freshest of flavors.
The arctic char has a mild, rich flavor. Its relation to the salmon allows the meat to have different flesh colors as well as a salmon like flavor with almost the same texture consistency of salmon. A good substitution for salmon or trout.
