Similar to an American lobster bisque, the broth for this warming Icelandic soup is reinforced with langoustine shells and reduced before being bolstered with cream and curry powder. Our version is adapted from a recipe by home cook Þorgerður Gunnarsdóttir, who served the soup at her Christmas Eve dinner topped with the plump poached tail meat. This recipe first appeared in our December 2014 issue with the story Northern Lights.
