One of my fave fish dishes, easy to prepare and tasty....light in the stomach too, great for those watching their weight!! ;D

Arctic Char in Pearl Onion and Sun-dried Tomato Saute

1 lb Arctic Char Fillet
2tsp lemon juice
2tbs Olive Oil
2 gloves minced Garlic
1/c pearl white onions, peeled
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes (preferably oil-packed), drained and diced
1 tbs fresh ground basil
salt and pepper

Wash fish and pat dry. Rub lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Broil on high heat for 5mins or until top is golden brown.

While broiling, in a sauce pan, saute garlic until golden brown then add pearl onion, stir occasionally until onions slightly cooked. Add sun-dried tomatoes, basil then dash salt and pepper to taste.

Arrange/pour in sauce in a platter, put broiled fish on top and garnish with parsley and caramelized onions.

Best served with Steamed Broccoli.
