Arctic Char En Papillote

Icelandic Seafood Brand from High Liner Foods introduces Arctic Char—a sustainable offering that’s ideal for traditional baked and grilled applications.


10 Icelandic Seafood Brand Arctic Char portions
1⁄2 lb. fresh spinach
2 pints cherry tomatoes, halved
2 bunches fresh asparagus with bottoms clipped
1⁄2 lb. unsalted butter, cut into 10 even squares
1⁄4 cup fresh thyme
1⁄2 cup white cooking wine
1 ea. lemon, cut into 10 even wedges
5 pieces of full size parchment paper
salt & pepper to taste


• Preheat oven to 400°F.
• Take the sheets of parchment paper and cut in half the short way with sharp knife or scissors.
• Place half of the parchment paper down on your cutting board. Place a bunch of spinach down a little off center of the paper. Place several cherry tomatoes on and around the spinach. Place 2–3 pieces of asparagus atop the spinach. Squeeze a lemon wedge over the vegetables and leave the wedge in the mix to flavor during the cooking process. Season raw vegetables lightly with salt and pepper.
• Place Arctic Char portions on top of vegetables. Place one butter square on top of the fillet. Drizzle about 2 tbsp. of wine over the top of the fish. Place a sprinkle of thyme on top of the fish. Season with salt and pepper.
• Fold the parchment paper over the top of the fish to create an “envelope” with the fish inside. Roll up the open sides to create an airtight seal.
• Place on pan and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes. Serve in the envelope for plate presentation appeal.
