Remember that time, a few days ago, when I shared a recipe for chipotle creamed corn with you and promised I'd share a recipe for the Torsk (Norwegian broiled cod) I photographed it with?
The day has come, my friends.
Read on for the recipe for torsk - it's fast, easy, and features relatively few, relatively simple ingredients!
* 2 (6oz) filets frozen cod
* 2 c. water
* 0.333 c. granulated sugar
* 2 tsp. salt
* 0.5 c. butter, melted
* paprika, to taste
* crushed cayenne pepper, to taste
1) Preheat oven to high broil.
2) Mix together the water, sugar, and salt.
3) Place the cod in a medium sauce pan and pour the salty-sweet water mixture over it. If the fish isn't completely submerged under water, add more water until it is.
4) Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and boil for 3-4 minutes.
5) Drain the water and blot the cod filets dry with paper towels.
6) Place the cod filets on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.
7) Brush with the filets with the melted butter and sprinkle with paprika and a bit of crushed cayenne pepper.
8) Broil for 8-10 minutes per inch of thickness, or until the fish is golden brown.
For a lobster-like experience, serve the cod topped with more melted butter!
