Lutefisk: A Tutorial
Stephanie asked me to blog what we eat on a daily basis in Norway. Since Christmas is up soon, I'll show you what we eat this time of year - for tradition. Lutefisk is the highlight of the season, and something I look forward to all year. It's true!
The taste is neutral, in consistence it reminds me of glass noodles - with a fish taste. Eating shivering fish with a lye smell can be..challenging. Which is understandable. My Danish brother in-law still struggles after 20 years in this family
I just had a great first meal of the season, and my colleague Huibert filmed it. To show you how we eat it. The secret is the accessories...
The fish is on the plate, along with mashed Peas and mashed Rutabaga. I'm adding:
Boiled almond potatoes
Bacon (yes, bring it on)
Brown whey cheese
Drink: Beer and Aquavit!
