Recipe: Golden redfish with chilli
A rare fish is now available from the Bónus supermarket chain in Iceland - golden redfish from fish company Norðanfiskur. Golden redfish is not a common food in Iceland.
Norðanfiskur just put three different products on the market: "skinpack" sealed fresh salmon, golden redfish and cod. Skinpack means that they're vacuum sealed and can hold their freshness longer.
Golden redfish is particularly rich in vitamin D and Omega fatty acids.
The recipe below is by Icelandic chef Leifur Kolbeinsson who owns Kolabrautin in Harpa concert hall.
Golden redfish is called Gullkarfi in Icelandic and is now available pre-packaged in Bónus. mbl.isGolli / Kjartan Þorbjörnsson
