Plokkfiskur


 

Happy New Year everyone! After all the Christmas foods it feels good to eat simple foods. Plokkfiskur is this awesome Icelandic traditional dish made from fish, potatoes, onion and bechamel sauce, so simple and delicious (though seasoned quite heavily with whitepepper).

I think I must have eaten it at least three times during our one week stay in Iceland!! It was always served with a very dark coloured bread that resembles a bit Danish rye bread on the outside, but tastewise it's closer to Finnish "archipelago bread": very sweet, with malted flavour and resembles mämmi (Finnish Easter dessert, malted rye pudding) very much.



Plokkfiskur

serves 2-3

250-300 g haddock or cod
500 g potatoes
1 white onion, finely chopped
250 ml milk
20 g butter
2 Tbsp wheat flour
salt and (white) pepper

Peel the potatoes and cook them. Saute the onion in butter to make it translucent, don't let it burn. Cook the fish (I cooked it on a frying pan on low heat, appr. 2 mins per side). Flake the fish and remove the bones. Melt 20 g butter in a saucepan and sprinkle flour on and stir even. Add milk and whisk even. Cook stirring continuously for 3-4 minutes or until thickened. Mash the potatoes and add the sauce, fish and onion to it. Stir gently and season to taste. Serve with malted bread.

Plokkfiskur - "Muusikala/kalamuusi"

2-3:lle

250-300 g turskaa, fileenä
500 g perunoita
1 sipuli, hienoksi kuutioituna
2,5 dl maitoa
20 g voita
2 rkl vehnäjauhoa
suolaa ja valkopippuria

Kuori ja keitä perunat. Kuullota sipuli, älä anna sen ruskistua. Kypsennä kala esim. paistamalla se miedolla lämmöllä (n. 2 min puoli) voissa. Hajota se esim. haarukalla ja poista mahd. ruodot. Sulata 20 g voita pienessä kattilassa. Ripottele jauhot päälle ja sekoita tasaiseksi. Lisää maito ja vispaa tasaiseksi. Keitä n. 3-4 minuuttia koko ajan sekoittaen, kunnes kastike sakenee. Muussaa perunat ja sekoita ne kastikkeen kanssa, lisää kala ja sipuli. Mausta suolalla ja valkopippurilla. Tarjoa esim. saaristolaisleivän kanssa.
