The aim of the project &quot;Trendy-cod&quot; is to develop new or improved prepared dishes based on traditional salt cured fish, and 16 participants from Iceland, Norway and the Faroe Islands take part in the project. The group consists of experts in processing and quality, cooking, food production, communication and the tourist industry.</p>\n\n<p>This report describes the results of the workshop &quot;What is salt-cured fish?&quot; held in the facilities of MK (culinary division of the high school in Kopavogur), September 28th, in collaboration of Mat&iacute;s, MK, Gr&iacute;mur Kokkur, the Chefs Club and the Association of Icelandic salt-cured fish producers. The goal of the workshop was to share knowledge and identify means to strengthen the position of salt-cured fish in the domestic market. About 40 people attended the workshop. Short presentations were given on the history, culture, process and desalting of salt-cured fish, and consumer knowledge and attitudes towards salt-cured fish and its consumption in Iceland. The sensory properties of salt-cured and salted fish were presented, and attendees had the opportunity to taste and compare two types of salt-cured fish and two types of salted fish. Culinary students presented their ideas behind salt-cured fish dishes, which were served for tasting. Group discussions covered the following topics: &quot;What is salt-cured fish?&quot;, &quot;How do we reach young people?&quot; and &quot;How can the product range be increased?&quot;.</p>\n\n<p>The workshop results showed that it is important to distinguish between what is truly salt-cured fish on one hand and salted fish on the other. Salted fish does not have the same characteristics as salt-cured fish, which after desalting gives the product unique properties such as a characteristic cured flavour and firm texture. There are endless opportunities for salt-cured fish. However, we need to better pave the way of salt-cured fish to the Icelandic market. Salt-cured fish deserves more respect as a food. To promote knowledge, respect, and consumption of salt-cured fish, it needs to be better promoted and made more visible, not least among younger age groups. What often hinders chefs and producers is lack of availability of fully salt-cured fish and let alone desalted fish. Desalting requires time and care, and often facilities, time or knowledge are lacking. We need to reach young consumers and improve the reputation of salt-cured fish in general. The name &ldquo;Saltfiskur&rdquo; (e. salted fish) is today used for different products of salted, fully salt-cured, and desalted fish, is not very appropriate, as it has a reference to salted fish, and has a negative image due to its association with other types of fish than fully salt-cured fish. Desalted fish should not be too salty. Perhaps, fully salt-cured fish that has been desalted, should be named something else in the Icelandic language.</p>",
