Top Eight Norwegian Dishes


Lutefisk is made from aged stockfish (air-dried whitefish) or dried/salted whitefish and lye. It is gelatinous in texture. Its name literally means "lye fish". Stockfish softened in water and lye, then cooked and sometimes grilled. Typical accompaniments are potatoes, bacon, mushy peas and mustard.

Brown cheese with a sweet, yet somewhat sharp flavor with notes of caramel. It is traditionally cut into wafer thin slices with a cheeseslicer and eaten on bread, toast or crisp bread. 



Salted and dried, and sometimes smoked, lamb's ribs which are usually steamed over birch branches. Served with sausages and mashed potatoes and swedes. The preparation of pinnekjøtt uses a traditional method for food preservation utilizing curing, drying and in some regions – smoking. Although lamb is today available fresh or frozen all year round, pinnekjøtt is still prepared in a traditional way due to the flavor and maturing the process gives to the meat. 


Lamb simmered with cabbage and whole peppercorns. 


It is a traditional dish made from a sheep's head, originally eaten before Christmas. The meat is salted, sometimes smoked, and dried. It is then boiled and served with mashed swedes and potatoes. Originally, smalahove was typically eaten by the poor, but today it is considered a delicacy. 


Rømmegrøt is Norwegian porridge made with sour cream, whole milk, wheat flour, butter, and salt. It is thick and sweet and is generally drizzled in butter and sprinkled with sugar and ground cinnamon. Because this is so rich, it is often served in small cups with a small amount of butter topped with brown sugar, cinnamon and cream.
