Other salmon and trout species are easily substituted in this recipe however, the cooking times will vary based on the thickness of the filets and/or portions.</p><p>This recipe calls for keeping the skin on the fish, as Char has a thin, delicate skin. Other salmon varieties, such as farm-raised Atlantic salmon, may be tastier if the skin is removed prior to cooking. The skin and dark flesh on most salmon varieties may be a bit strong in fish flavor for some palates.</p> Fri, 18 Jul 2014 14:44:22 +0000 Bruce Mattel 95164 at http://wamc.org Food Friday Recipe: Pan-Seared Arctic Char with Moroccan Spices Food Friday Recipe: New England Clam Chowder http://wamc.org/post/food-friday-recipe-new-england-clam-chowder <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;"><a href="http://www.ciachef.edu/">The Culinary Institute of America</a>’s rich, creamy version of the American classic.
