arctic char in place of salmon

simkhele | Dec 24, 201102:34 PM     6

I am cooking for 10 for New Year's Eve. I love Ina Garten's roast salmon with fennel and onions -- not only because it is delicious, but because there doesn't have to be much fuss in the kitchen once guests have arrived. However, it is not wild salmon season and the farmed kinds currently available are in the "avoid" category of Seafood Watch. (see: http://www.montereybayaquarium.org/cr... ) I am wondering if the recipe would work with arctic char. And if so, would the cooking time be the same? If not, other festive arctic char suggestions that don't require lots of prep and at-the--stove time right before serving?

(The other option would be an all-veggie dinner, so suggestions welcome -- as long as they contain no mushrooms other than plain old white button ones since a guest is highly allergic to shitake, portobello, etc.)

Thanks!
