Arctic Char w White Beans & Thyme
Takes 15 mins - Serves 4
It'll blow you mind at how much flavour you'll get from these 5 ingredients.
- 4 Arctic char fillets (5 ounce portions)
- I can white beans (cannellini), rinsed and drained
- Zest of 1/2 lemon
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1 Tbsp fresh thyme
- 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
*FISH COOKING TIP - Pat dry skin side of fish (dry skin makes for crispy skin). The key to cooking thin fillets is to cook them to 90% skin side down.
Fish: In a fry pan over medium heat add a healthy splash of olive oil. Season both sides of the fish filets. Place in pan skin side down. With a spatula, gently press down on the fish so it doesn't curl up. After a few seconds it’ll stay flat on its own. Turn heat to medium/low until the filet loses almost all it’s opaqueness, and then flip for the final 30 seconds to crisp the skin.
Beans: In a small pot over medium heat add a very generous splash of olive oil, garlic, beans and thyme. Heat up and toss until garlic has sweated (2/3 minutes). You're not looking to cook the beans, just warm them until the garlic and thyme scents the beans (approx. 3 to 5 mins.) Add lemon zest and juice and salt/pepper.
Cut a lemon and fry on a hot pan for a minute or 2 as the perfect garnish
