Arctic Char is a fish that falls somewhere between salmon and trout in both flavor and texture. It's a terrific source of Omega-3 fatty acids!
If you can't find arctic char, you can substitute salmon or red snapper in the recipe.

- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup peeled and finely chopped cucumber
- 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
- juice of 1 lime
- 2 teaspoons olive oil

- In a small bowl, combine yogurt, cucumber, cilantro, and lime juice. Season with one or two large pinches of salt.
