Chipotle-Lime Arctic Char with Avocado Salsa

I picked up some arctic char from the Waitrose fish counter a while ago, it's very like salmon, so i used it in place of salmon in this recipe. This was delicious, I served it over brown rice, and I loved the combination of the flavours.

Chipotle-Lime Arctic Char with Avocado Salsa (from Closet Cooking)
(Serves 4)

2 tbsp oil
juice and zest 1 lime
1 tbsp chipotle paste
1/2 tsp cumin
1 clove garlic, grated
salt and pepper
4 fillets salmon or arctic char

For the Avocado Salsa
2 large avocados, diced
juice 1 lime
1 chilli, finely diced
1 plum tomato, finely chopped
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp coriander, chopped

Preheat the oven to 200C.

Mix together the oil, lime juice and zest, chipotle paste, cumin and garlic. Place the salmon on foil on a baking sheet, pat dry, season with salt and pepper, spread on the chipotle mixture and bake for about 10-15 mins.

Whilst the salmon cooked make the avocado salsa by combining the ingredients in a bowl and mixing together. Serve the salmon with the avocado salsa on top.

  1. Yum! I've not tried Arctic char but we eat loads of salmon so maybe I should give it a go for a change. Love the idea of fish with avocado salsa. x
