I had lunch with Gerd today. On the menu: Fiskepudding = "fish pudding". Yes, it sounds absolutely horrible -- how could I resist? I couldn't believe there was such a funny-sounding Norwegian food that I hadn't tried yet. A name like "fish pudding"... it's hard to think of a less appetizing name. Maybe "liver toothpaste" or something like that.
It comes in a pre-cooked loaf. It's really less like pudding and more like tofu. Gerd sliced it and fried it in a pan with zucchini. We then put it on bread with butter, mayo, cooked zucchine, red pepper, and a splash of lemon. It was... absolutely wonderful. I have a new favorite food!
