Plokkfiskur from Iceland

My DH was excited when I found this recipe in *Cool Cuisine* (Traditional Icelandic Cuisine) by Nanna Rognvaldardottir. The English translation of *Plokkfiskur* is *Mashed Fish* but I found that title more than a little off-putting for something that is so favored here & opted to use the Icelandic word. Per the intro, "In early times when Icelandic housewives served poached haddock (or other white fish) w/boiled potatoes several times a wk, there were usually leftovers & they were typically incorporated into this simple & very popular dish. Today people buy fresh fish just to make this dish & it is even sought after & found in upscale restaurants." (Times have been estimated, but this recipe begins w/the fish & potatoes already cooked so that time is not reflected) *Enjoy* ! - *Edited to Add* on 10/3: When visiting w/an Icelandic friend tonite Re this recipe, she said this dish is also popular in a gratin form that adds cheese (usually Gouda) to the mix, tops it w/extra cheese & then finishes it in the oven to heat thru & melt the cheese. *Yum* !
