Cod liver oil recipes that impress

Using cod liver oil in cooking is an ingenious way to make your diet a little healthier. Norwegian chef Odd Ivar Solvold explains how you can sneak some beneficial fish oil into your dinner:

 It’s best to combine cod liver oil in acidic dishes – anything from fresh tomato sauce to vinaigrette. Avoid anything with cream as cream enhances the flavor of cod liver oil.

You can also reduce the amount of cooking oil you use by mixing it with fish oil. This works well with good quality canola oil. 

But my first choice is to use pure cod liver oil. My favourite is cod liver oil in a vinaigrette dressing with onions. Onions softens and integrate the oil flavour.

Try these mouth-watering cod liver oil recipes that Odd Iver developed especially for Möller’s. Who knew cod liver oil could taste so good?
