Traditional Lutefisk Recipe

Lutefisk is a Scandinavian dish made from dried whitefish that’s been treated with lye, resulting in the fish having a gelatinous consistency and often, depending on the type of whitefish, a very strong, pungent odor.

In Norway, it is typically served with boiled potatoes, mashed green peas, melted butter, and pieces of fried bacon, whereas a side of white sauce in combination with previously mentioned boiled potatoes and green peas is the traditional choice of Swedes and Finns.

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

2 kg lutefisk

200g bacon, diced

2 tablespoons salt

600g potato for serving

 

Pea stew:

3 dl peas, dried

1 teaspoon butter

salt

sugar

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE TRADITIONAL LUTEFISK RECIPE

Preheat the oven to 200 °C. Wash and cut the lutefisk and place in a baking pan with skin side down. Sprinkle with salt and cover with aluminium foil or a lid. Bake the lutefisk in the oven for approx. 30 minutes.

Over medium heat, fry bacon so the fat melts and the bacon gets crispy. Boil potatoes until soft and tender in another pot.

 

Making Pea stew:

In a large bowl, soak the peas in water over night. Rinse and drain

In a pot on a medium heat, cook them in fresh water until tender and the stew evens, approx. 45 minutes. Add more water if it gets too firm.Gently add butter and taste with salt and a little sugar.
