CUKETKA's Christmas Arctic char with tarragon

Martin Kuciel aka CUKETKA takes on Central European Christmas culinary conventions with this semi-traditional interpretation using Arctic char. Cheers for the recipe @cuketka!

  • Time of preparation:
    30 minutes
  • The fish should be left overnight in the fridge to defrost.


Number of servings

  • 2 portions Arctic char
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 sprigs of tarragon
  • 500 g potato
  • 2 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon shallots
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • tarragon, chive
  • salt and pepper


  • In a bowl mix together the shallots, mustard, and vinegar to make a smooth marinade. Add oil to the required consistency.

  • Peel the potatoes and chop into wedges. Cook in salted water.

  • Add in chopped tarragon and parsley. Add the cooked potatoes to the marinade and leave for two hours to marinate.

  • Heat the oil in a pan and fry the char, initially skin side down.

  • The fish may then be turned. Add a dollop of butter, a sprig of tarragon and finish on a low heat.

Enjoy your meal!
