Fish facts

Cooking golden redfish

The flesh is firm and responds well to frying or grilling. It is similar to – and can be treated like – pike-perch or perch.

The fresh taste of cucumber goes well with this fish. Just add a little acidity, salt, a mild onion and black pepper.

The classic

Grilled or fried in butter. Serve with a crème fraîche-based sauce, flavored with mustard, lemon, tarragon and plenty of chives, for example.

Conservation status:

Red, MSC-approved fishing methods have been developed in Iceland.
