This week, we randomly selected Iceland to try out cooking some recipes from. We didn’t really know a lot about Iceland except for the recent parody movie about Eurovision. We didn’t really have a lot of expectations before going into their cuisine. But, we were pleasantly surprised in the end with what we ended up cooking:
- Hotdog – quite funny that if you search for food you need to try in Iceland, hotdog seems to be one of the top ones. We braised it in beer as in this recipe. 6/10.
- Plokkfiskur – fish stew. This reminded me of the Portuguese dish Bacalhau com natas. We left the potatoes as larger chunks as we preferred it like that. 8/10. Recipe here
- Skyrterta – Skyr is an icelandic dairy product. Since we couldn’t find one here, we replaced it with Greek Yoghurt as it was recommended as a substitute. The cake was not too sweet. 8/10. Recipe here
