A trio of toppings—a lemony sesame seed sauce, a chunky nut-and-herb “pesto,” and sweet-tart pomegranate—boost the flavor and appearance of simple seared Arctic char, a fish from the same family as trout and salmon. You can chop the nuts and herbs in a food processor to save time, but process them separately so that the herbs won’t get bruised and mushy. I like serving this dish with a roasted carrot salad.

Definitely serve with the roasted carrot salad. A good meal for entertaining. A bit of work at the beginning but it can be put together really fast.
I really enjoyed this. I couldn't find any arctic char (apparently it's hard to get around my areaI checked 3 different stores!), so I used atlantic salmon instead. It was great. Very filling. I served with steamed cardamom carrots. Delicious. I'll definitely be making again!
I was amazed by the results. Dressing the fish with nuts and fruits and herbs with color is fantastic.The flavors and textures were so vibrant.
