With a green rating from Monterey Bay Aquarium, Icelandic Arctic Charr is an excellent choice for a sustainable seafood selection. This land based aquaculture project sources naturally filtered Icelandic water via underground boreholes and is naturally free of any parasites or pathogens. Water flows through the farm by gravity and any additional pumping/heating is powered by local geothermal energy. In addition to the use of sustainable energy, trees are planted to compensate for any excess carbon footprint.
The meat is a vibrant orange with a mild, almost sweet taste. Delicate and delectable texture makes this fish the chef's choice for a versatile protein that can be served raw, seared, poached, steamed, grilled, or broiled. The thin skin crisps up for a full-flavored accent or application for salad and side dishes as well.
