A classic Swedish lunch recipe found in “Cattelins Kokebok” (Cattelin’s Cook Book) published in 1978
Cattelin was one of the best and cheapest restaurants in Stockholm. It had survived wars, disasters and changing tastes, and still managed to pack ‘em in until they were forced to shut down in 2011, so they must have done a lot of things right.
This is a nice dish for a lunch party – it is not too time-consuming to make either. The fish you use should be firm. An admonishing word along the way: Make sure the mushrooms are browned properly, not boiled.

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

Ceviche is a fun way to cook food. It is a method of preparing raw fish and shellfish. You marinate raw fish or shellfish in lime or lemon juice and the citrus acid causes the proteins to coagulate, so the seafood is actually cooked. You can add any kind of tastes to a ceviche.
A traditional Scotish fish dish found in “War Time Recipes” published by The Proctor & Gamble Co in 1918
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.

Traditional food with an asumed origin from Western Norway. These days, this dish is eaten all over the country, and every “stewed fish family” have their own recipe. Some people use plain cod or stock fish instead of lightly salted cod. Some families may swear to pollock, but there is one thing they all have in common. A really tasty meal.
A fish dinner recipe found in “Old Gloucester Sea Food Recipes” published by Frank E Davis Fish Company in 1932
If this dish was old-fashioned back in 1932 it sure is today. An unfamiliar way to serve cod for a Scandinavian, but it does sound delicious. Apart from the beets and onion it sound a little like what we call “Plukkfisk” in Norway – Ted
