Norwegian Recipes in English


You came to the right place to find taste-pleasing Norwegian Recipes in English.

On these pages, I will give you free recipes for delicious traditional foods of Norway as well as new recipes from everywhere.

This country is known for its Salmon and Codfish and other seafood products, but the Norwegians enjoy a great variety of foods, not just fish.

Here you will find recipes for roasts, stews, soups, casseroles, and salads using beef, pork, lamb, venison, chicken, and fish.

In addition, you will find recipes for tradional Norwegian dessers, such as bløtkake, Christmas cookies and cakes; berry puddings, sweet berry soups, compote and traditional Norwegian foods such as lefse and småbrød.

While visiting, you will also find out about the foods unique to the various villages and towns around Norway. Many village or district have their own unique methods and recipes for some of the traditional foods of Norway. Some of the recipes have the name of the Municipality or town attached to it, such as Fræna ball, which means potato dumplings from Fræna, or Kristiansunds Bacalao.

This country offers many nuances in food preparation and the foods do not lack delicious flavors. No wonder, people from all over the world come to live in Norway and of course, they bring their special native cuisines along with them. It didn't take long before Tacos became a Norwegian food. he he

Furthermore, when the "Norskes" travel and they do a lot of that, they discover delicacies from foreign lands and bring great recipes back to their homeland.

So even though, Norwegians hold tight to their traditional foods, they enjoy trying new things. Norway is a country of variety. The recipes here will reflect that.

My mom, makes great Mexican foods. Tacos are one of her her specialties.

mom-on-her-back-porch The other day I gave her a compliment about the fact she makes such good Mexican food, she said, "Oh, I don't make Mexican food, I only make Tacos".

She also makes a delicious pizza. Find the recipe below. OK, done bragging about my mom for now, but it is hard to stop.
