Norwegian Fish Soup (above)

Are you looking for a good seafood recipe - how about giving Fish Soup a try? If you have been searching for ideas on how to cook seafood you came to the right place.

The end results obviously are determined by the type of seafood used in your recipe and the other ingredients you add.

Where good, fresh seafood is readily available, the ingredients are not limited. And, if you have a fisherman in your family making delicious food from the sea is as easy as pie.

With the enormous amount of water in and around Norway, the Norwegians have created almost unlimited ways to prepare seafood.

Of course, there is a difference in fresh fish. Fresh water fish is caught in lakes and rivers and Salt Water Fish, is caught in salty oceans and fjords.

One of my favorite saltwater fish is North Atlantic cod obviously caught in the cold waters of the North Atlantic.

Codfish is great in so many recipes. You can steam it, fry it, deep fry it, saute it, salt it, dehydrate it, bread it; bake it, and use it in casseroles, soups, bisques; making Bacalao of salted cod and even using fresh or salted cod in Mexican Tacos, to mention some.

Cod is great for making soups, like in the fish soup recipe listed below. Also, you can use cod to make Norwegian fish dumplings, seafood bisque, fiskeboller in Norwegian, large fish dumplings, stor fiskeball in Norwegian, fish cakes (fiskekaker), and fish loaf, which is called fiskepudding in Norwegian.

Codfish is not the only kind of fish that can be used in making fish soup, most fresh fish offer great taste and nutrition also. Freshwater fish, as well as saltwater fish, can both be used to make seafood bisque and many other delicious dinners for your family.

Ever tasted soup made with seafood? Maybe now is the time for this delicious venture into well-tested waters -no pun intended.
