Easy Healthy Baked Whole Arctic Char in Salt Recipe

Serves/Makes: 6 - 8

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole Arctic char, about 3 pounds, cleaned
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 bunch fresh chives
  • 4 sprigs fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 1 three-pound box kosher salt
How to cook Easy Healthy Baked Whole Arctic Char in Salt:
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Rinse the whole Arctic char under cold water.
  • Stuff rosemary, chives, parsley and lemon slices into cavity of whole char.
  • Whisk together egg whites and water.
  • Add salt and mix well.
  • Spread 3 cups of salt mixture along bottom of baking sheet. This layer should be large enough to fit outline of the whole char. Place fish on top.
  • Completely cover the whole char with a 1/2-inch layer of salt mixture.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until an internal temperature of 140°F is reached. (Allowing the fish to cool inside the crust will keep it moist, even if you can’t serve it right away.)
  • When the fish is ready, break open the salt crust. Skin the fish carefully so the salt doesn't touch the flesh.
  • Serve with potatoes, fresh vegetables and warm Bernaise sauce.
