 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Salt
  • 6 Codfish steaks; fresh,
  • -sliced 3/4" thick


1/4 lb Butter
1/4 c Hot fish stock (from above)
1 md Tomato; peeled, seeded and
1 tb Chives; finely chopped
Salt & pepper

8 tb Butter; melted
1 Lemon; thinly sliced
Parsley sprigs

If you don't have a long, narrow fish poacher, an enamel roasting pan 5"
deep will do just as well. Fill the pan with water to a depth of 4" and add
1/2 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. EGG SAUCE: Melt the butter in a
saucepan. Remove from the heat, beat in 1/4 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. In Norway,
this dish is often accompanied by raw diced carrots, sprinkled with lemon
juice and new potatoes (see recipe).
