Blackened (Cajun) Arctic Char

1 Arctic char - 1 kg(4.5 lbs)
6 tb Butter
2 Lemons, cut into wedges
1 tb Cajun spice (recipe follows)


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.
