This was outstanding! A lot of local smoked fish seems to have colouring added which I didn't think would suit the recipe so I went to the fish market and bought a nice haddock fillet and hot smoked it myself, reserving the juice that came off during smoking for the stock. I spent all of that 15 minute simmering time in the kitchen taking up the wonderful aroma! I used the exact amount of mashed potato you posted and found it spot on, rich and creamy without being too thick.

So yummy! I made this as the basis of a fish pie to eat on Good Friday. This recipe looked so tempting that instead of making the fish with a mashed potato/cheese crust, I made this beautifully potato thickened stew (subbing smoked cod for haddock) before topping with a little grated cheddar and weaving some shortcrust on top before placing in the oven. Everyone loved it! Thanks, FT!

I just made this to have for dinner later on, but I want to sit down now and eat the lot! This is truly delicious. It's simple and quick to make, and a great way to use some of the fish we smoke ourselves. I used herring (which aren't really herring, but a small oily fish related to salmon (which aren't really salmon but an Australian fish that looks like salmon). This one will get made again soon!

Both seafood & potatoes are revered in Iceland, so this soup was destined to be a winner for us. It is so easy-to-fix, gets its richness from the use of mashed potatoes & makes a meal when paired w/a light salad & crusty bread. The finishing touch of the butter swirled over the surface of the soup made us feel like we were dining in a fine restaurant. We loved it! Thx for sharing this sure to be repeated recipe w/us. :-)
