INGREDIENTS
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 5 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 package (17 oz) steamed lentils (or 3 cups canned, rinsed and drained)
  • 1/4 cup chopped mint
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 4 arctic char fillets (5 oz each), skin removed
  • Orange slices and mint sprigs for garnish
PREPARATION
Heat oven to 400°. In a bowl, whisk orange juice and zest, 4 tsp oil, vinegar, 1/2 tsp salt, mustard and 1/4 tsp pepper. Gently stir in lentils, chopped mint and onion.
