Shot entirely on location, "New Scandinavian Cooking" offers a rich visual tour of Nordic cuisine, culture and history. Award-winning TV host, food journalist and cookbook author Andreas Viestad treats viewers to an eye-opening voyage through his native Norway, where he creates tantalizing recipes with unusual ingredients against stunning natural backdrops. In several episodes, two guest chefs — Sara La Fountain and Claus Meyer — join Andreas on his culinary adventures through Finland and Denmark.

In this episode, Andreas travels to northern Norway and Bodo, where despite the variety of fish, the locals’ favorite remains the modest pollock. Andreas finds out why and then makes seared pollock with onion jam, lingonberries and asparagus, homemade fish fingers with remoulade sauce and pollock gratin.

Seared Pollock by the Norwegian Fjords

Above: Seared Pollock with Caramelized Onions: This dish makes me cry twice, once while cutting the onion, and once while I am eating the wonderfully sweet onions together with the fresh-tasking, flaky fish. Pollock is a great wonderful fish for searing, and I use bacon fat to give the skin a lovely salty and smoky flavor. Adding a few cloves brings a nice spicy element to this traditional dish.
