Lutefisk, breaded fried and frozen
  [vote for,

Bring this Scandinavian culinary treasure to America in a convenient fried frozen-food form. For the our typical diner-in-a-hurry who craves something new, culture and convenience combine deliciously in the form of Lutefisksticks. Someone get to work producing marketing and distributing these things ASAP. Thanks.

"No, really, I mean 'no thank you!'" [k_sra, Oct 17 2004]


       I hate lutefisk but I imagine there are those who would adore this. (My father's father was first generation Norwegian and a certain amount of my childhood energies were spent avoiding lutefisk, a meritless meal if there ever was one and we won't even get into sild.)

       Link, please. What is it?

       I think that it is safe to say that there is nothing Scandinavian that is in any way edible.
pluterday, Jun 27 2003

       Oh no, not true at all. A Danish tebirker is heaven.
bristolz, Jun 27 2003

       I'm with [blissmiss] on the lutes.
k_sra, Jun 27 2003

       [k_sra]: Your picture of lutefisk is quite unlike the steaming mush it is actually served as. This picture depicts it as fish.
Cedar Park, Jun 28 2003

       Now wait a minute [k_sra], if you're with [blissmiss] on the lutes why did you say "no thank you?"
bristolz, Jun 28 2003

       It's the fisk that gets [k_sra]'s rejection. The lutes are OK.
Cedar Park, Jun 28 2003

       WOAH! That stuff looks gnarly! Then again, I've found that a lot of the worst looking food is among the tastiest. Pass the fisk!
snarfyguy, Jun 28 2003

       can a grey gelatinous mass be formed into anything remotely resembling a "stick"?   

       But to the other topic at hand, my godmother is full Swede, and serves lutefisk every christmas. I've learned to tolerate the taste (it's not that bad if it's made properly), but I still can't stand the texture.

       Well Bris, perhaps I went too far in saying that nothing Scandinavian is edible. But my working theory is that the edibility of European fare is generally inversely proportional to latitude. That is why you don't see many Norwegian restaurants in the US.
pluterday, Jun 28 2003

       say "fish sticks" three times fast. Heh heh.

       Hehehe heh, um.... that was cool.
