The smell of this seafood stew as it simmers on the stove will bring back every outing you’ve ever had to the sea. Tear into the rustic bread, dip a piece in the creamy white wine sauce and let the juice dribble down your chin.
A classic Norwegian fish dish found in “Fisk og Skalldyr” (Fish and Shelfish ) published by Hjemmets Kokebokklubb in 1980
Fish gratin is a classic Norwegian dinner dish. It’s a simple, fast and child-friendly way to cook fish. It has always been one of my favorites, whether made with potatoes, macaroni or shellfish like here.

Cod is perfect for everyday life when time is scarce, the family is hungry and you need a healthy, quick and tasty dinner.
But cod is also great as party food. Put cod on the table when family or friends get together for a nice meal and a good atmosphere is guaranteed. With its firm white meat and its delicate flavour, cod is perfect for both everyday and parties.

This dish has always been popular in Norway and it still is. You will find several versions of it in the freezers at any grocers all over the country. Nice enough of course, but nothing compared with your own home cooked – Ted
A personal favourite from “Varme Småretter” (Hot Snacks) published by Gyldendal in 1991
This was often part of the Saturday evening family gathering at our cabin outside Oslo when I was a child. This recipe is exactly the same as my mother used and I still use, though I’m a bit heavier on the curry than she was. I am so fond of this that I know the recipe by heart- Ted
This is a very popular starter for big parties. The safest is to order the shells in good time in a bakery or in the grocery store. Filled shells can be served as hot dishes on a smörgåsbord or as a separate dish with friend gatherings. Calculate two shells for each serving. The fish puddings can be exchanged with tiny fish balls and the prawns with crayfish tails.
