Boiled cod has been traditionally served in Denmark with this sauce on New Year's Day for many years. This recipe is from a cookbook issued by the International institute in Milwaukee many years ago.
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup water, from that used to boil cod
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon danish fish mustard or 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Add flour to melted butter over low heat and stir for a few minutes. Gradually add the water and then the milk and continue to coo with stirring until you get a thick sauce. Add the mustard and salt and blend in well. Serve as a sauce alongside your boiled cod.
