Arctic Char is a meaty fish -- here it's served with a reduced-rose shallot sauce and a side of buttery peas.

  • 1 bottle (750 ml) rose wine
  • 2 large shallots, sliced into thin rings
  • 1 pound Arctic char fillet, cut into 4 pieces
  • Salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces


  1. Bring wine and shallots to a boil in a straight-sided saute pan. Season fish with salt; add to wine, covering with a round of parchment paper. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 4 minutes (for medium rare). Remove fish, and bring wine to a boil; boil sauce until only 1/4 cup remains; swirl in butter. To serve, spoon sauce and shallots over fish.
