Fish Pudding (Fiskegrot)

“Molded into balls this is fiskeboller. Baked in a loaf it is called fiskegrot. The Norwegian table would not be without this basic form of fish. The Norski (Norwegian) immigrants brought their eating habits from the old country with them to the New World, and this is a perfect example.”
