Norwegian Fish Soup Recipe


Are you looking for a Fish Soup recipe? What is the difference between Fish Soup and Seafood Bisque? That is the question many are asking.

The difference between the two is mainly in the name other than Bisque is a thicker soup. The flavors obviously are determined by the type of seafood used and the other ingredients.

Where good, fresh seafood is readily available, the ingredients are only limited by your imagination.

With all fish in the waters in and around Norway, the Norwegians have created almost unlimited ways to prepare seafood.

Now, there is a difference in fresh fish. Fresh water fish is caught in lakes and rivers and then there is Salt Water Fish, which is caught in oceans and fjords.

One of my favorite fish is cod, which is caught in salt water. It is great in so many recipes. You can steam cod, fry it, deep fry it, saute it, bread it; bake it and use it in casseroles, soups, bisque, making Bacalao and even in Mexican Tacos, to mention a few.

Cod is great for making soup, like in the fish soup recipe listed below. Also, you can use it to make Norwegian fiskeboller, big fish dumplings and fiskepudding.

But, cod is not the only a great fish to use in your cooking, most fresh fish offer great nutrition. Fresh water fish as well as salt water fish can both be used to make seafood bisque and many other delicious dinners for your family.

Never tried soup made with sea foods? Maybe now is the time to venture out into tested waters, (no pun intended) knowing that seafood is so good for us.

It is not a theory that we can we all benefit from including more low calorie fish in our diet. Give this Norwegian Seafood Recipe a whirl.
