Norwegian Torsk: Baked Cod Never Tasted So Good!

By in Journal


A long-standing family tradition at Christmas was Torsk, a Norwegian dish of baked cod.  Now that I’m older, and we’re largely a pescetarian household (we mostly are vegetarian while adding fish and seafood into the diet for added protein), I love having this fairly regularly as my own little version of comfort food.

If you are looking for a quick and easy meal tonight, this just might be it.  Here’s what you’ll need.

Ingredients: (for two)

2 thick pieces of Fresh Cod
8 tbsp Salted Butter
Salt, Pepper and Nordic Fields to taste


Place the cod fillets into a glass baking dish, place 4 pads of butter (approximately 1 tbsp each) along each fillet. Season with salt, pepper, and Nordic Fields and then bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes.

Remove and serve. Yeah, that’s it! Enjoy the yum!
