Enjoying the last few weeks of summer, so I decided to make a new recipe with seared Artic Char with a tangy and nutty romesco sauce. This is not your typical weeknight dinner, but I promise you will be one of your favorite to add to your meal plan.
Have you tried Artic char before?
Artic char is a cold water fish, from the Salmonidae family, native to the alpine lake water or Artic coastal waters. The fillets look very similar to salmon, but has a softer texture, very buttery and mild flavor. Packed with healthy fats and omegas-3's.
Once I tried this fish, it became a favorite at home.
I typically like to seared in a cast iron pan to get that great crunchy skin, just simply seasoned with salt and pepper.
For this recipe I made a romesco sauce, inspired by Mozza Cookbook. This is the perfect topping for this dish. It is creamy, nutty and the right tanginess to add a layer of flavor to this fish. It is the perfect topping!
In order to keep it simple I tweak the recipe a little. I used a jar of roasted red peppers instead of fresh roast one, and used only almonds since I didn't have hazelnuts. I guarantee it was still delicious!
So let's get cooking with @dishplay_it
Look at this delicious, nutty and creamy romesco sauce. You may add to your favorite fish or chicken. Simply flavorful.
