Famous Annual Lutefisk & Meatball Dinner [VIDEO]
It's time once again for the Northland tradition of eating really disgusting fish because both the Swedes and Norwegians claim it was invented in their country. It's basically aged, air-dried, salted whitefish that's been soaked in a mixture of water and lye for days on end then cooked or steamed, then bathed in butter and salt. You then get to attempt to choke it down I'm guessing. To each their own. I have never tried it. I don't need to, all I need to do is watch the faces of the newest reporters that happen to be working for WDIO every year as you'll see in this clip :
If you do want to try Lutefisk for yourself, or if you really are a fan of it here is where you can get yourself a plateful. They will also be serving meatballs and other Scandinavian delights.
