In Norway, this dish is often accompanied by raw diced carrots, sprinkled with lemon juice and new potatoes.













Trans-fat Free, Low Carb


½ cup salt
6 each cod fish steaks
fresh, sliced 3/4 inch thick
Egg sauce
¼ pound butter
¼ cup fish stock
reserved from cooking cod, still hot
1 medium tomatoes
seeded and chopped
1 tablespoon chives
finely chopped
1 x salt and black pepper
to taste
Alternate garnish
8 tablespoons butter
1 each lemon
thinly sliced
1 x parsley sprigs
for garnish


Fill a fish poaching pan or a 5 inch deep enamel pan with water to a depth of 4" and add ½ cup salt.

Bring to a boil (over two burners, if necessary).

Reduce heat slightly and gently slide the cod slices into the water with a spatula.

Lower the heat until water is bubbling slightly and simmer for about 5 minutes.

Be careful not to overcook or the fish will disintegrate.

Remove the slices with a slotted spatula and drain them on a linen napkin or dish towel.

Reserve stock for use in the egg sauce.

Arrange cod attractively on a heated platter and serve with egg sauce.

To make the sauce: melt the butter in a saucepan.

Remove from the heat, beat in ¼ cup of the stock in which you poached the fish and stir in chopped egg, tomato, parsley and chives.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Heat almost to the boiling point, pour into a sauceboat and serve with the cod.

If you prefer, you can simply pour melted butter over the cod and garnish with lemon slices and parsley.

Hi. Not to complain, but I think that Denise forgot to list the eggs as an ingredient. I can see that we are to add chopped egg to the sauce at the end, but how much?
