Lutefisk is slimy cod soaked in lye, and enjoyed by many in Minnesota, but is there a connection with cannibalism?

The result is a gelatinous, slimy whitish glob that is best eaten soaked in melted butter.

  1. As a swede I grew up with it and I can tell you it has never been my favourite cuisine either. LOL!

    If you want to try something tastier, try to find a few bottles or cans of Julmust, Sweden’s favourite soft drink around christmas time. It’s dark like Coke and foamy as beer but tastes like neither of them. It tastes a lot better than lute fish, you can take my word for it.
