Smoked Arctic Char
Our preferred way of smoking char or any other fatty fish. An old method for conserving fish that gives it a beautiful flavor.
It's a versatile ingredient that you can use in bagels, sandwiches, pastas, salads, quiches, and omelets.
If you can't find arctic char, you can use any fatty fish, such as salmon and trout.
