A creamy, dreamy cod fiskegrateng
Wine and sour cream combine with marinated cod in this casserole
1-1/2 lbs codfish
1 cup dry white wine
2 tsp. salt
1 bay leaf
touch of thyme
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
chopped green onion
paprika to taste
Marinate the fish in wine, salt, and thyme overnight. If you are making fish soup, drain and save the liquid for the soup.
I cut off all the brown pieces of fish and use them for fish broth by simmering the fish with one carrot, one cup of leeks, green onion, and onion, and one stalk of celery.
The next day, pat the fish dry with paper towels and place in an oven-proof dish sprayed with Pam.
Mix together sour cream and mayonnaise. Add a bunch of chopped green onion and spread over fish. Sprinkle paprika on top.
Bake at 410° for 20 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
