Norwegian Mixed Dumplings / Blandaball

I posted a recipe for potato dumpings the other day. This is a more extensive recipe for a similar dish. I know this one well as my x-mother-in-law often made it – Ted

Pollock Steaks with Onion / Seibiff med Løk

A classic Norwegian dinner dish found on matprat.no286_Seibiff med løk_post

Pollock is an excellent fish, when speaking of great taste this fish is in a class of its own. Pollock steaks with onions is a delicious Norwegian everyday classic.

This recipe calls for broccoli and cherry tomatoes. When little Ted was served this as a child it was much more likely served with butter steamed carrot slices and green peas as both broccoli and cherry tomatoes was introduced to the Norwegian kitchen so late that they look a little out of place in a recipe for a classic Norwegian dish.

I still eat my pollock steaks with onion with carrots and peas, a classic is after all a classic – Ted 😉


Pollock Patties with Raw Vegetables and Herb Dressing / Seikaker med Råkost og Urtedressing

A nice fish patties recipe found on
Seikaker med råkost og urtedressing_godt_post

I know I’ve posted about fish patties earlier, but fish patties are staple food in Norway. Any decent grocer will have at least 6 or 8 different types in stock. Almost any type of fish can be used, my mother made great patties from pike and perch I used to catch in my youth.

There are a multitude of recipes for fish patties around the country so I’ll be sure to post more recipes in the future – Ted
