With this soup you take full advantage of the shrimp since the shrimp shells are the basis for the broth. If you get leftover shrimps, they will make a nice sandwich for breakfast the next day.

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

Puff Pastry Shells with Seafood Stew / Butterdeigskjell med Fiskestuing

A personal favourite from “Varme Småretter”
(Hot Snacks) published by Gyldendal in 1991

Puff Pastry Shells with Seafood Stew / Butterdeigskjell med Fiskestuing

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.

Crab Soup / Krabbesuppe

A luxurious soup recipe found in “Sunt og Godt”
(Healthy and Nice) published by Det Beste in 1988
Crab Soup / Krabbesuppe

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
