Grilled Arctic Char with Chermoula for CBC's Weekend Morning Show!

 Tomorrow I will be presenting the following on CBC's Weekend Morning Show with host Terry MacLeod.

This is such an easy to prepare and versatile dish that goes beautifully with our local Arctic Char from Gimli Fish. 

This is a classic Moroccan flavouring for fish but also goes well with vegetables.

Chermoula for Fish or vegetables

1 head garlic, peeled (or 3-5 large cloves)
� tsp cayenne
1 heaping tbs cumin
pinch saffron
� bunch parsley
1 whole bunch cilantro
juice of one lemon
2 tbs vinegar
1 generous tbs olive oil
salt, to taste

1-2 fillets Arctic Char

Blend all of the first ingredients in a food processor and place in glass bowl. Set some chermoula aside for extra at the table.   Mix in the fillets and let marinate for at least 30 minutes. Grill on BBQ sheet for 10+ minutes without flipping (depending on thickness of fillet).

Serve immediately.  

Can also use Chermoula with saut�ed carrots or marinate and grilled eggplant.
