Fiskmarkaðurinn

Fiskmarkaðurinn or Fishmarket uses Iceland’s freshest ingredients to prepare original fish, meat and sweet dishes with a modern twist.  Housed in one of theholdest buildings in Reykjavik, we chose to eat here for our final meal in Iceland.




Along with the complimentary bread basket, we were treated to an amuse of salmon tartare.  With sesame seeds, the flavor had an Asian slant but was very fresh and tasty. I could have eaten a couple more bites.


We started with Oysters from Scotland, where the waters are clear and cool, making the oysters juicy and delicious.  These were very plump and amazing with a simple squirt of fresh lemon.


We also enjoyed the Sashimi On the Rocks with salmon, tuna, scallop, artic char, ocean perch and sweet shrimp, cut to perfect sized sashimi.  The best pieces were the salmon that tasted most fresh.


For his main dish, Keith chose the Grilled Blue Ling served with smoked and crispy cheek of Atlantic catfish, roasted cauliflower, yellow beets and Hollandaise sauce.  This North Atlantic fish was fresh with nice white flakes.


I ordered the Grilled Langoustine Tails served with a small piece of flounder with daikon salad with tomatoes and creamy langoustine sauce.  The langoustine are like baby lobsters and were cooked lightly to heighten their natural sweetness.  The accompanying sauce was very buttery and sinful.  Overall, this dish was lovely.


Lastly, for dessert we shared the Warm Chocolate Cake filled with chocolate ganache and served with pineapple and vanilla ice cream.  It was a nice sweet finish to our seafood meal.
