    Julesong's Note:

    My husband recently made this dish for a Scandinavian potluck. As strange a combination as it sounds, it's very tasty and was gobbled up by everybody at the event. Give it a try! This recipe is based on one from an excellent cookbook called "Eat the Norway," where they say: "Should you be invited to an informal evening get-together in Norway - sewing club, bridge party or the like - you may well be served this dish, particularly in late summer when Norwegian cauliflower is at its best."

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Peel and de-vein the shrimp, reserving the shells, and coarsely chop the shrimp meat into 1/2-inch sized pieces; then set the meat aside.
    2. 2
      Place the reserved shrimp shells only (not the uncooked shrimp meat) in a stockpot together with the water; turn temperature to high and bring to a boil, then reduce to low, cover, and let simmer for 20 minutes.
    3. 3
      While stock is simmering, break the cauliflower into small florets and steam until tender, about 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      Strain shells from the stock and reserve the liquid.
    5. 5
      Add flour to butter in a saucepan over medium heat and cook until golden.
    6. 6
      Gradually stir in the shrimp stock and half and half and whisk together until thick.
    7. 7
      Add salt and white pepper and stir well, then add the uncooked chopped shrimp and cook for about 5 minutes or until shrimp turns pink, careful not to overcook or the shrimp will toughen.
    8. 8
      Remove from heat and pour the sauce over the steamed cauliflower in a large serving dish; serve with bread and a green salad.
    9. 9
      Note: if you put the completed dish into a crockpot or other thermal container, it can also travel well to potlucks.

      Soooo good. I can't imagine anyone not liking this cauliflower. Marvelous flavor. I made half a recipe and ended up doubling the flour.

      I made a double batch of this for our Norse dinner, and there were no leftovers to take home. Everybody loved it!
