A recipe for traditional Christmas cod found on
Traditional Norwegian Christmas Cod / Tradisjonell Juletorsk

Most Norwegians eat either pork ribs or lamb ribs for Christmas, but it should be no surprise that those of us who have the sea right outside the front door prefer fresh fish on Christmas Eve. Christmas cod is a traditional dish, and a Christmas dinner classic especially in southern part of Norway. If you can get hold of really fresh cod where you live and like fish, this dish is in no way a miss on the Christmas table.

I must admit that I’m stricktly a pork rib guy when it
comes to Christmas, but I’ll gladly eat cod served like this
any other time of the year

That said, many have cod during Christmas. Here is a recipe with lots of delicious Sandefjord butter sauce.
