Fishballs

Between all the baking and cooking, we sometimes long for simplicity
This is one of them.
Typically Norwegian, dreaded by many foreigners.
Loved by many kids!
And kind to an upset stomach.
We eat them with white sauce, like bechamel,
potatoes and vegetables.
Some add curry to the white sauce, to jazz it up a bit.
When Norwegians go traveling abroad for a while,
and try all sorts of exciting flavors,
many of them start longing for this after a while.

It's hard to find something more local thatn this! But I'm sure it wouldn't stop you tasting it!

Swedes eat fishballs too but prefer them smaller. And off some silly reason we have to pay more for them here than in good old Norway (where everything else is more expensive).

oooh yeah, some more of the white sauce, less peas ( as in none at all!) possibly some boiled carrot, and curry - lots of it!! :o)

What kind of fish?

Marjie sa...

This looks like how I serve my fish. But I prefer mine with rice or angel hair.

Simen: Do they look upon it as posher than we do you think?

Monica: What about it in Denmark? Any fishy balls there?

Buffalodick: White fish I think, probably cod or haddock.

Marjie: We like to mash our potatoes with our forks in the white sauce, Its lovely!
