Fish gratin or known as fiskergrateng in Norwegian was another one of the Norwegian dishes I tried the other day. Absolutely scrumptious. Very creamy and delicious. This is a one-pot-dish you would love to eat. I think even people who don’t care much for fish dishes, won’t really notice the fish in there. This is easy to prepare and it’s pretty much a complete meal on its own!!

What you will need:
  • 3 spring onions
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup macaroni noodles or other type of pasta (I used bow tie)
  • 1 lb 5 oz (650 g) haddock fillet (cut into bite-size cubes)
  • 4 Tbsp butter, unsalted
  • 2 eggs (separate the yolks from the whites)
  • 4 Tbsp flour
  • 3 Tbsp bread crumbs
  • 1¾ cups milk
  • 1½ tsp nutmeg powder
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Coarsely chop the spring onions. Cook the macaroni noodles following the instruction on the package
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan, add the flour and stir milk in all at once. Use a wire whisk and whisk vigorously to make sure they are blending smoothly. Bring to a boil and lower the heat to let it simmer for 10 minutes. Add in the spring onions for the last 2 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Remove from the heat. Add the beaten egg yolks into the sauce while stirring at the same time to make sure they blend in
  3. Add the fish cubes and cooked macaroni noodles into the sauce. Mix gently to make sure all are covered with the sauce. Pour into a 8-9 inch-baking or casserole dish. Bake for 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown
  4. Serve with melted butter immediately
