Stock fish

Icelanders have probably dried fish for sustenance since the time of settlement. For many centuries in Iceland, salt was a rare commodity, which meant that salting food for long-term storage was impossible. Fish that was not consumed fresh had to be air-dried to produce what has been called stock fish. With this method it could be stored for a long time and then soaked and cooked when required. Today stock fish is produced from headed and gutted fish that is air-dried, hanging by its tail from racks. The drying frames are either erected on open areas close to fishing towns and villages or in specially constructed drying houses where geothermally heated air blows around the fish and speeds up the process. Nowadays almost all Icelandic stock fish is exported, mostly to Italy and Nigeria. Icelanders mainly consume a type of stock fish that is called harðfiskur (hard-fish) and is mostly produced from haddock and catfish. It is filleted, dried and often cut into bite-sized pieces. Harðfiskur with a pat of butter is a delicious and healthy snack that most Icelanders enjoy.

Skreið

Íslendingar hafa líklega þurrkað fisk sér til lífsviðurværis frá upphafi landnáms. Salt var lengi af skornum skammti á Íslandi og því ekki hægt að salta mat til geymslu. Allan fisk sem átti ekki að borða nýjan þurfti því að herða með þurrkun og kallast slík vinnsla skreiðarverkun. Skreið hefur verið vinsæll matur á borðum landsmanna í aldanna rás, allt í senn holl, góð og næringarrík fæða. Hin síðari ár hefur hennar fyrst og fremst verið neytt í formi harðfisks sem er unninn úr ýmsum fisktegundum, þó aðallega ýsu og steinbít. Léttbarinn harðfiskur með vænni smjörklípu hefur alla tíð þótt herramannsmatur. Á þorrablótum landsmanna er hann ómissandi ásamt hákarli og íslensku brennivíni.
