A great fish dish found in “Internasjonale Retter Med Norsk Fisk”

It’s not often I come across Icelandic recipes in my collection of old cook books, but here is a really delicious one. I don’t know about you, but I love the combination of firm cod fillets, onion and crispy bacon – Ted

A classic Norwegian way to cook trout found in “Sommermat”
(Summer Food) published by Hjemmets Kokebokklubb in 1979
When you have caught a few 1/2 pound sized stream or mountain trouts there is few other ways to cook them better than this. Whether you cook them on an electric, gas or charcoal grill or right there in the embers of your camp fire they will taste absolutely delicious – Ted
A recipe from “The Cooking of the British Isles”
published by Time/Life in 1970
I’m a real sucker for good fish and ships. For me, rounding off the day on holiday in Britain, nothing beats a few pints of traditional bitter in a nice pub and then picking up a serving of fish and chips on the way back to the hotel or bed’n’breakfast. I’m a simple soul, I know – Ted 😉
A spring recipe from “Carl Butlers kokebok Fortsettelsen” (Carl Butler’s Cook book-The Continuation)
published by Cappelen in 1991
In 1974 cookbook history was written in Scandinavia. That year a bunch of foodie friends published a cookbook that would become one of Scandinavia’s most popular, “Carl Butler’s Cookbook”. With folded corners, patches of pie dough, tomato and French mustard and an unmistakable scent of dried herbs and garlic this book is found in hundreds of thousands of Swedish, Finnish, Danish and Norwegian homes. The book put for the first time coq au vin, moussaka and patè on many a scandinavian’s table. This book was the first cook book I bought and I still got it and still use it.
It took 17 years before I and every other Scandinavian fan of the book could rush to the book store to buy the continuation. It is simply called “Carl Butler’s Cook book – The Continuation”. This recipe is the first one I post from that book, a lot of recipes from the one from 1974 has been posted already as they are also featured in a cook book Butler made for IKEA and I’ve posted lots of recipes from that book – Ted
