  • LuteFish

    I saw Lutefish on that show with Andrew Zimmer and the weird food he eats. Even he couldn't stomach only a small bite of Lutefish. Ya gotta wonder how some of these "Traditional Dishes" get started.

      That is the nastiest stuff known to man. I was forced to eat it once. I still taste it, 17 years later.

          It has been a tradition with my family growing up. My mother is 100% Norwegian. Every year at Christmas or we would get together at a family event the snotty fish would be cooking. UGH!

          I was forced to try it once when I was little and power puked all over the kitchen table. I think I was 6 or so, barely enough to remember the horrible emotional trauma to this day!!

            That is awesome. Shame we didn't have video cameras back then.
            I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

            • I found this on wikipedia..

              Quote from Garrison Keillor's book Pontoon:
              Lutefisk is cod that has been dried in a lye solution. It looks like the desiccated cadavers of squirrels run over by trucks, but after it is soaked and reconstituted and the lye is washed out and it's cooked, it looks more fish-related, though with lutefisk, the window of success is small. It can be tasty, but the statistics aren’t on your side. It is the hereditary delicacy of Swedes and Norwegians who serve it around the holidays, in memory of their ancestors, who ate it because they were poor. Most lutefisk is not edible by normal people. It is reminiscent of the afterbirth of a dog or the world's largest chunk of phlegm.

                It's " TRADITIONALLY" Unpalatable. T.C.

                            I come from a proud culinary tradition that brings you such gems as "Blood Sausage" and "Head Cheese".

                            The way these dishes probably got started was along the line of:

                            "We have one cow, one pig, two chickens, a village of 500 people, and 4 months of winter coming up.....how can we make sure this feeds us all winter????"

                            The better question would be why some of these "traditional dishes" never stopped?

                              I agree. All parts of the animals used to get used. I remember when I was young and going into the store with my mother and looking at the cow tongue and heart, and pig’s brains, knuckles and ham hocks. And tripe. The intestines. All parts of the animal you rarely see in the meat sections of stores now a days.
                              My German Grand Mother used to say they used all parts of the pig, even the squeal. Ha ha

                                Same here. We call it red (blood) and white boudin. Use everything but the squeal and oink.
