“When I turned the pg of *Cool Cuisine* (Traditional Icelandic Cuisine) by Nanna Rognvaldardottir & read this recipe, it made me so hungry that I went straight to my kitchen for some food! Per her intro, "This is a luxurious dish! Altho langostines, prawns & other crustaceans now enjoy great popularity in Iceland, this has not always been the case. They were not commonly eaten a few decades ago, but Icelanders discovered these delicacies in a big way in the 1970s & have been making up for their earlier neglect ever since." This recipe has me thinking I should join their mission for our next spec occasion! (Time does not include the 30 min refrigeration time) *Enjoy* !”
