I haven't tried this one yet, but it looks really good. It's from Sara's Secrets on the food network. It's actually an open faced sandwich. Note: Since Arctic char is rather hard to find and expensive to get your hands on, I have substituted salmon for this recipe. This was posted for Zaar World Tour 05
