1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

4 cloves garlic, each cut in half

2 pints cherry tomatoes


3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 (5oz) skin on Arctic Char fillets

Preheat the broiler. Set a large cast iron skillet on the stove over high heat until it is smoking hot. Add the olive oil and garlic. Cook the garlic until it is blistered and golden brown. Add the tomatoes, but do this very carefully; otherwise searing hot oil will splash up onto you. Cook until the skins of the tomatoes begin to blister in the hot oil, about 1 minute then season with salt. Cafefully place the char fillets, skin side up on top of the tomatoes and transfer the pan under the broiler. Cook for 6 minutes, and then check on the fillets. The skin should be blistered and bubbling. Remove the char fillets to serving plates. Spoon the tomatoes onto the char fillets and serve immediately.
