This wonderful dish is almost like a very traditional Icelandic cod recipe I once tried… For the story behind this recipe we’re taking you to Patreksfjörður, Iceland. In the waters surrounding this island you can find beautiful cod. The quality and taste of the fish are amazing!
The Icelandic citizens have one very strange way of preparing cod. To find out we went fishing with one of our cod fishermen, Thorsteinn Olafsson. Afterwards Thorsteinn wanted to show us his favourite dish. We first poached the cod and boiled potatoes… so far so good.
But! In the end, Thorsteinn poured over lamb stomach fat! It’s an Icelandic tradition, which we respect, but is obviously not made for our taste buds. Therefore we simply replace the lamb fat with melted butter and voilà! An amazing dish with sustainably caught cod from Iceland. Enjoy!
(note: the cod in this recipe needs to be salted overnight, so make sure to prep the fish one day before)
