A dinner recipe from “Fisk og Skalldyr” (Fish and Shellfish) published by Hjemmets Kokebokklubb in 1980
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.

A dinner recipe found in “Cooking for a Man” published by House of Heublein in 1953
Since it is my birthday today I thought it only right to post one of my favourite dishes. I love curry and I love shellfish. And I even found that recipe in a book that was published the year I was born. So now those of you with a head for numbers can find out how old I am
A luxurious soup recipe found in “Sunt og Godt” (Healthy and Nice) published by Det Beste in 1988
This luxury soup is made with a minimal of effort and it is a pleasure to serve. The mild crab flavour gets a warmer undertone from the curry and basil. You can use lobster instead of crab if you want an even more exclusive soup.
It may be more exclusive, but it will not be more tasty, as lobster boiled in the traditional manner taste less than crabs cooked the same way
