Nuked fish - Kjarnorkufiskur

Christmas is over and the New Year’s Eve madness as well (although I still hear the occasional explosion as people discover overlooked fireworks or celebrate January birthdays by letting off a few). What better way to calm stomachs that are still recovering from all the heavy holiday food than by serving up a delicious fish dish?

This is my grandmother’s recipe for a quick fish gratin with vegetables:

Take 1 fish fillet, skinless and boneless, preferably haddock or cod - but any firm, white fish will do. Cut into pieces. Take some raw potatoes, carrots, a small rutabaga and some cauliflower. Slice carrots, cut cauliflower into small florets and chop rutabaga and potatoes into bite-size pieces. Layer into a microwave-safe casserole dish. Break a couple of eggs into a bowl, add some milk and spices (salt, pepper, and fish-spice mix). Mix well. Pour egg mixture over the fish and veggies. Top with grated cheese. Nuke on High until the vegetables are tender and the egg mixture is cooked.
