Traditional Norwegian Stewed Fish / Plukkfisk

A traditional Norwegian dish found on matprat.no
Traditional Norwegian Stewed Fish / Plukkfisk

Traditional food with an asumed origin from Western Norway. These days, this dish is eaten all over the country, and every “stewed fish family” have their own recipe. Some people use plain cod or stock fish instead of lightly salted cod. Some families may swear to pollock, but there is one thing they all have in common. A really tasty meal.

Old-Fashioned Codfish Dinner / Gammeldags Torskemiddag

If this dish was old-fashioned back in 1932 it sure is today. An unfamiliar way to serve cod for a Scandinavian, but it does sound delicious. Apart from the beets and onion it sound a little like what we call “Plukkfisk” in Norway – Ted

Norwegian Cod with Egg Sauce / Torsk med Eggesmør

A classic Norwegian recipe found in “The Best of
International Cooking” published by Hamlyn in 1984

Norwegian Cod with Egg Sauce / Torsk med Eggesmør

This is what happens in books like this, the authors like to fiddle with the recipes giving them their personal touch ruining the authenticity. This is a rather well known recipe to Norwegians. The sauce here, which in Norway isn’t even called a sauce, but “Eggesmør” (egg butter) is wrong. I’ve just been checking through several dozens of recipes. Some use just eggs and butter, some cream, eggs and butter. Some chop the eggs finely, some roughly. Some add chives, some parsley or dill. But no one but no one uses broth or tomatoes.

I’m sure people from other countries have found their local recipes have been fiddled with too. But having said as much, you really should try this recipe, it is simply delicious. Just leave out the broth and tomatoes in the sauce/egg butter.

Traditional Irish Cod Fish Cakes / Tradisjonelle Irske Fiskekaker Av Torsk

Traditional Irish Cod Fish Cakes / Tradisjonelle Irske Fiskekaker Av Torsk

Fish cakes are Irish traditional fare at its very best. These little wonders are created by combining mashed potatoes, flaked cooked fish, and herbs, then formed into individual cakes and coated in breadcrumbs before frying.

This is a perfect recipe for using leftover mashed potatoes, if such a thing ever exists. But don’t worry you can always boil a few spuds for mashing to make these delicious and economical fish cakes.

Cod fish cakes may be simple but are ever so tasty. Traditional Irish fish cakes often use salmon or a mixture of salmon and whitefish but, for now, here’s a recipe that uses just cod.
