How to Explode the Myth That Cheese Can't Go With Fish

My buddy Karl Benson has cooked this recipe for 15 years, but it took me 10 years to even taste it. Once I did, I was sold. I hope you don’t wait as long as I did to found out how stubborn and how wrong you can be. I think he got this recipe from his Swedish family, or from cooking one night at home with his friend Marcus Samuelsson, the famous chef, and experimenting a little bit.

My buddy Karl Benson has cooked this recipe for 15 years, but it took me 10 years to even taste it. Once I did, I was sold. I hope you don’t wait as long as I did to found out how stubborn and how wrong you can be. I think he got this recipe from his Swedish family, or from cooking one night at home with his friend Marcus Samuelsson, the famous chef, and experimenting a little bit. Karl owns the premiere culinary-equipment store in the Midwest, called Cooks of Crocus Hill, where I have been teaching for 20 years. Yikes, I am old. Anyway, with salmon running so well this year, I thought you might like this insanely good change of pace, which EXPLODES the myth that cheese and fish don’t go together.

Serve it hot, with ice-cold Carlsberg beer, brown bread and butter and cucumber salad for the complete Scandinavian experience.
