Kleina (plural kleinur) is an Icelandic fried pastry that has been popular domestically for at least two centuries. It is made from flattened dough cut into small trapezoids with a special cutting wheel called a kleinujárn. (A pizza cutter can also be used.) A slit is cut in the middle and then one end pulled through the slit to form a "knot". The kleina is then deep-fried in oil (traditionally tallow).

Homemade Icelandic Skyr.  I have such fond memories of having this for breakfast when I visited Iceland as an undergrad...  We stayed with families for 4 or 5 days and had this every morning.  Excited to find a blog post on how to try it at home.

Plokkfiskur (Iceland).     Another fish/cream/potato dish, but with haddock or cod (I just used basic white fish from sainsbo's)  it's a lot milder than Jansson's Temptation and I really liked it. It got good reviews from everyone (Eurovision again).    I cooked mine in the crockpot (other than the initial bit with the onions and butter).
