Finnan-Haddie-Balls_thumb2

Finnan haddie (also known as Finnan haddock, Finnan, Finny Haddock or Findrum speldings) is cold-smoked haddock, representative of a regional method of smoking with green wood and peat in north-east Scotland. Its origin is the subject of a debate, as some sources attribute the origin to the hamlet of Findon, Aberdeenshire, (also sometimes called Finnan) near Aberdeen, while others insist that the name is a corruption of the village name of Findhorn at the mouth of the River Findhorn in Moray.

Gädda i Grädde / Creamy Pike

A simple fish dish found in “God Mat På en Halv Timme”
(Nice Food in Half an Hour) published by Allt Om Mat in 1974

Gdda-I-Grdda_thumb2_thumb

For this dish the golden rule is: The simpler the better. But then for a Swede the combination of pike, cream and tomato puree is unusually obvious.

Pike is copious both in Norwegian, Finish and Swedish lakes and it is a very popular fish both in Sweden and Finland. It is hardly ever eaten here in Norway though. Strange really, though it is rather ugly to look at it is absolutely delicious with its firm white meat – Ted

Salmon a la Reine / Laks a la Reine

Chafing-Dish_thumb2A chafing dish (from the French chauffer, “to make warm”) is a kind of portable grate raised on a tripod, originally heated with charcoal in a brazier, and used for foods that require gentle cooking, away from the “fierce” heat of direct flames. The chafing dish could be used at the table or provided with a cover for keeping food warm on a buffet. Double dishes that provide a protective water jacket are known as bains-marie and help keep delicate foods, such as fish, warm while preventing overcooking.
