I grew up eatting lutefisk and this is my grandmas' lutefisk recipe. Most Norwegians serve their lutefisk with melted butter.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • lutefisk
  • salt water, mixed 1/4 cup salt per quart of water


  1. Place the lutefisk in a kettle, and add enough cold salt water to completely cover them(some people like to place the lutefisk in cheesecloth and tie the ends itno a bag, before placing in the kettle.).
  2. Bring gradually to a boil. (Caution: It will be done when brought to a full boil, and if boiled too long the fish will fall into pieces.).
  3. Remove from the burner, skim off any foam that appears and the let the lutefisk stand for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Drain well, and serve steaming hot on warmed plates.
