*Djupsteiktur Fiskur* in Icelandic, this recipe could more aptly be named "Iceland Does the Fish Part of Britain's Fish & Chips" -- Long, but accurate. :-) Although I've lived here in Iceland for 4+ yrs now, I've posted only a handful of Icelandic recipes. I decided to remedy that, went to the library yesterday & found *Cool Cuisine* (Traditional Icelandic Cuisine) by Nanna Rognvaldardottir. Per her intro: "When the British Army occupied Iceland in 1940, it didn't take enterprising Icelanders long to discover what to offer the soldiers & the 1st fish & chips spot opened in Reykjavik a few wks later." Iceland is known for its fish & potatoes, so this was a natural for them. (Time does not include 30 min resting time for batter) *Enjoy* !
