Arctic char

My dad sent me this picture recently, it is of an Arctic char. With bok choy and roasted potatoes. I did not know this kind of fish, I don't think I ever had one. But it looks delicious. On the Wikipedia entry, and from the other pictures I have seen on the internet, it looks kind of nasty. Like many fishes, the Arctic char has an ugly face. Which would fit the general rule one of my cousin told me about fishes: the uglier the fish, the tastier it is.

Arctic char is indeed delicious -- light, flavourful, not excessively fishy. If you see it on a restaurant menu, order it! It's probably more commonly available in Canada than in Britain, though.
