    Pets'R'us's Note:

    When we lived in Norway we used to eat lots of fish...this recipe reminds me of a fish soup which was very common there. You can use other fish and shellfish. The potatoes and tomatoes are ingredients I have been adding over the years and listed them as optional.

      Delicious! Just moved to the Stavanger area and wanted to recreate the recipe we had at one of the local restaurants. This is the closest I could find to the original we had before; I doubled this recipe for my family and still didn't have enough for leftovers! I added parsnips and celery, as well as adding two different types of fish (cod & salmon), I didn't include the tomato. We will be making this again soon.
