Broiled Arctic Char with Marinated Cucumber and Radish Salad

As a rule, I stay away from making specific time promises because everyone moves at a different pace, and life gets in the way of a "20-minute recipe." But! I'm going to break my own rule and say that in 20 minutes or less you can have dinner on the table.

1 English seedless cucumber (14 to 16 oz/400 to 455 g), very thinly sliced

8 radishes (about 8 oz/225 g), very thinly sliced

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup chopped fresh dill, plus more for serving

2 tablespoons poppy seeds

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 (6-oz/170-g) thin pieces skin-on or skinless Arctic char

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the cucumber, radishes, oil, lemon juice, dill, poppy seeds, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Let sit, tossing occasionally, until the cucumbers and radishes soften slightly, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the fish. Preheat your broiler to high. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place the fish on top. Season with the cayenne pepper and 1 teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Broil until just barely opaque throughout, 3 to 5 minutes. Watch them like a hawk! They cook faster than you think and thin pieces cook super quickly.
  3. Serve the fish with the cucumber radish salad, sprinkled with dill, salt and black pepper.
