In this recipe, the fish, vegetables and grain are all cooked in one dish for a convenient, fast and easy meal. It doesn’t skip out on flavor either. Cooking the fish directly into the bulgur and vegetables creates a super flavorful side to the rich and meaty arctic char.
Preheat the oven to 425˚ F. Toss the artichokes and marinade, zucchini, lemon wedges, garlic, shallot, thyme, 1 tablespoon olive oil, the red pepper flakes, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Bake until the vegetables are tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, pat the fish dry with a paper towel and brush with the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Remove the baking dish from the oven and stir the mixture. Stir in the bulgur and 1 1/4 cups water. Nestle the fish fillets skin-side down in the vegetables and bulgur. Return to the oven and bake until the fish flakes easily with a fork and the bulgur is tender, about 12 minutes.
Transfer the fish to plates. Season the bulgur mixture with salt and pepper, if needed. Add to the plates. Top with the chives.
