It's clearly a dare.

Cakes,
Cut into wedges? Gracious,I thought the stuff crumbled before you could cut it. You must mean the bread... hey, maybe that's what they're using for pizza dough, ya betcha.

There's nothing like a good lutefisk apizza washed down with a tankard of glog.

Bottom line: I'm only eating this lutefisk pizza if
it's personally delivered by THIS Swede:




Anyone know Vendela's e-mail address?

Adjudicator, you know what lutefisk is, don't you? (And that's not a cheap Lauren Bacall-style come on.) It's cod soaked in lye. As the lady says in 'Drop Dead Gorgeous' "best with lots of butter." I have eaten at Sven & Ole's and whereas they actually do have the lutefisk, like lots of places in Minnesota, I do think the lutefisk pizza is a dare.

Incidentally, one of the most gorgeous places, scenery-wise, ever. Downtown Grand Marais, looking right out on the north shore of Lake Superior. It's right next to the gift shop with the giant walleye strung through the front of the store, and a block away from World's Best Donuts. And they are.

I had the lutefisk at Vertin's in Ely, Minnesota some years ago. In a switch on the traditional chips and salsa presented in Mexican places, Vertin's plops bowls of pickled herring down in front of diners when they are seated. Something Scandahoovian, I believe.

Michael,
Other than national/ethnic origin, what is the relationship of Pickled Herring and Lutefisk. In reality are they normally served 'together'?
I really like the Pickled Herring filets in Wine Sauce and consume them on a regular basis (when our WalMart Gets a fresh shipment). I have never seen them served anywhere except on a 'SoCal Seafood Buffet' menu. And Lutefisk is the result of the humor of the board in my book, I have never seen it anywhere. Maybe I am blind to things of that nature. Dried Squid in Baja wasn't on my roadfood sample list either.

The only relationship of which I am aware is that both are Scandinavian treats. When it comes to pickled herring, although I like it in wine sauce, my preference is for creamed pickled herring, with lots of onions. When it comes to lutefisk, my preference is for almost anything else.

..."my preference is for creamed pickled herring, with lots of onions"...

One jar = one meal

This deserves a thread by itself.

The jar in my refrigerator would be a meal for five or six.

Mr. Mayor,
Hey, I just recently scored the 45 "Baja" by The Astronauts, Colorado's most famous surf band. Thanks for reminding me!

P. S. That's about like the guy who said he was a surf bum in Flagstaff, Arizona. Someone informed him that it was 500 miles of nothing but sand from there to the Gulf Of Mexico. "Yeah, I know," he replied. "Hell of a beach, ain't it?"

Adjudicator,
The Winn/Dixie down the street carries that, as well as the variety in wine sauce. My late mother loved it, and I agree... it's great by itself - and even better with lotsa onions.
My mother also loved pickled pig's feet, which I never developed a taste for. But she couldn't comprehend either livermush or chitterlings, much less barbecued goat, so I guess we're even.
By the way, I support your thread idea.
Hungrily, Ort. Carlton in Upstate Georgia.

My wife has relatives in Minnesota and Wisconsin, so whenever we go up there I make it a point to ask if we can have Lutefisk. She just laughs and says forget about it, so I ask her relatives some are pro and many are con. I still can't imagine what it would taste like. I have tried Italian and Portuguese Bacala, New England creamed Cod and delicious baked Cod. What's the deal with Lutefisk? I love pickled Herring especially in sour cream sauce. Is there a bad Lye taste present? Next time I'm trying it, but not on my beloved Pizza.
