Lemon & Herb Crusted Artic Char
1.5 pound fish fillet, skin removed (use any fish that you like: salmon, halibut, artic char, red snapper..)
1-2 handfuls of fresh herbs, I used basil and thyme
1 garlic clove
1- 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, cut into quarters
zest from 1 lemon
1/4 cup breadcrumbs (use plain or flavored- whatever you got!)
2 tablespoons good olive oil
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into tiny pieces
Use your favorite herbs...or whatever you have in the fridge!
Place the herbs, garlic, ginger, and lemon zest in a food processor.
Process until all chopped up into fine pieces.
Add the breadcrumbs, olive oil, salt and pepper. Process until combined.
Use the back of a spoon and your fingertips to spread the crumb topping over the entire surface of the fish.
Scatter the pieces of butter evenly over the crumb topping.
Place the fish, covered, in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15 minutes. Uncover, and bake for an additional 5-8 minutes until golden.
