Lumpfish popular with tourists

Þrír frakkar in Reykjavik is probably one of the most established fish restaurants in Reykjavik and this cosy little venue offers traditional dishes as well as fish with a French or Meditteranean twist. 

Chef and owner Úlfar Eysteinsson speaking to Morgunblaðið says that lumpfish - called Rauðmagi (red belly) in Icelandic, is very popular with tourists right now.  He fillets the fish, and serves it accompanied with its boiled liver and soft roe.  It's served with butter and vinegar.

Lumpfish is only available during its fishing season of which around ten days are remaining, so better get it quick!
