Recipe by Bergy
This is a traditional Swedish dish (also served in Norway but the Danes have more sense). It is a dish that you acquire a taste for (like Haggis). When you do acquire a taste you love it so I'm told. I have not cooked this recipe but it comes from a traditional source. This is not a joke this is an authentic recipe!

I was raised with having Lute Fish every Christmas. My Grandmother is Swedish so thatis how I was introduced to the fish. As a young child my Grandpa would trick us into eating the fish by mashing it into our mashed potatoes! Then I decided I would just eat it on my own. I like it with white sause and with boild Swedish potatoes covered in real butter. Most Christmass I get two or three feeds of Lute Fish, ist great!
