Garlic Ginger Arctic Char

This is a quick supper that’s easy enough to serve to family, yet delicious enough to serve to your best company. Make sure you buy the fish with the skin still on, as the skin helps to hold in the moisture and make it super yummy.

We serve this with sautéed bok choy or an Asian stir fry.
