Norwegian Fish Soup Cooking Recipes

Ingredients :

450ml / 3/4 pint milk

1/4 onion

6 peppercorns

blade of mace

1 bay leaf

a few parsley stalks

50g / 2 oz butter

450g / 1 lb cod fillets, skinned

50g / 2 oz button mushrooms, sliced

125g / 4 oz cooked peeled prawns

30g / 1.5 oz plain flour

1 tbsp lemon juice

125g / 4 oz grated Cheddar cheese

salt and pepper


To serve:

country bread


Method :

Put the milk into a saucepan with the onion, peppercorns, mace, bay leaf and parsley stalks. Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and leave to infuse while preparing the remaining ingredients. Melt the butter in another saucepan and use a little to brush the inside of a 1.6 liter / 2.75 pint ovenproof pie dish. Cut the cod into finger-size strips, place in the pie dish and scatter the mushrooms and prawns on top.

Strain the milk through a sieve, then discard the contents of the sieve. Add the flour to the remaining butter in the saucepan, stirring to blend. Gradually stir in the strained milk to make a smooth sauce. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice and add two-thirds of the grated cheese. Stir until melted.

Pour the sauce over the fish, sprinkle with the remaining cheese, place on a baking sheet and cook in a preheated oven, 180C (350F), Gas Mark 4, for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Serve with country bread and salad.
