The easily replicated recipes help viewers bring the aromas and tastes of Norway into their home kitchens.
"The Coast Of Mid Norway: Shellfish Eldorado" - In this episode, host Andreas Viestad visits some of the richest fish banks in mid-Norway and then prepares a seafood dish with native scallops, crabs and lobster. The region also holds some of the most modern aquaculture for salmon and mussels — and Andreas makes the most of these ingredients.
