 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      Each          Arctic char -- 1 kg (4.5 lbs)
    6      Tablespoons   Butter
    2      Each          Lemons, cut into wedges
    1      Tablespoon    Cajun spice (see recipe)
 
 Fillet the Char (fresh or thawed) about 25 mm thick (1-1/2"). Don't be afraid to
substitute trout, perch, shrimp, or any firm-fleshed seafood or fish for the
char. Melt butter in a cast-iron or heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium high
heat.  Add Cajun spice and heat thoroughly.  Place fillets in pan.  Squeeze juice
of one lemon into pan.	Cook fish for about 5 minutes on each side.  Serve with
remaining lemon wedges and pan drippings. From the Calgary Herald (89.05.03) by
Terry Bullick Terry worked as an assistant cook at the Arctic Char Lodge, a
fishing resort on Great Bear Lake, just 18 Km south of the Arctic circle.
