Nordic Dip / Nordisk Dipp

A flashback from the seventies found on “European Favourites” published by Collins in 1973
Nordic Dip / Nordisk Dipp

This may very well be a Nordic kind of dip from the early seventies. Paprika was high fashion among the cooking savoir faire back then and you risked getting celery in dishes where they far from belonged. Probably because some local health guru had sworn to its many benefits.

I can even remember a tv ad proclaiming celery’s magnificence as snacks. With this dip you could actually end up dipping pieces of celery in a dip containing celery. I’ve said it before, those were hard times back then.

To make it even worse, the horrid disco music  was lurking in the near future. A few years later you could actually risk sitting somewhere overdosing on celery listening to that horrible music. – Ted

A delicious and simpel seafood recipe found on saveur.com
Peel-and-eat Shrimp with Spicy Herb Butter / Rens-og-Spis Reker Med Krydret Urtesmør

A great way to eat fresh shrimps and a bit more exciting than the traditional way we do it here in Norway: spread on fresh white bread, topped with mayonnaise, freshly ground pepper and dripped with lemon juice. It is not unlikely that I’ll try this the next time the lust for shrimps grabs me (but I won’t skip the white bread though) – Ted  😉
