1. Adjust the rack in the broiler so the fish will be about 3 inches from the heat.

2. Preheat the broiler for 10 minutes on high heat.

3. Line the broiler pan with aluminum foil and coat the foil with oil or cooking spray.

4. Rinse the arctic char filet briefly and pat very dry with a paper towel.

If the fillets have skin on them make sure all the scales have been removed. Make a few thin slits just through the skin with a sharp knife. It helps to prevent the fillet from curling.

5. Coat both sides of the fish with oil or butter and place it on aluminum foil.
6. Season the top of the arctic char with your favorite seasonings. Plain salt and pepper works fine.

7. Broil the arctic char for about 7-10 minutes or until it flakes easily.
Normal size fillets won’t need to be turned.
The fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork. Whenever possible use a meat thermometer. Fish is done at 145 degrees.
