This Scandinavian dish with a texture similar to Jell-O® is made from dried cod (lutefisk) that has been rehydrated in salt water and topped with melted butter.
Bring water and salt to a rolling boil.
Add lutefisk and return to a boil.
Remove from the heat cover and let sit for 8 minutes.
Check with an instant-read thermometer to make sure the internal temperature has reached 140 degrees F (60 degrees C).
Carefully remove lutefisk from water using a scoop strainer or skimmer spoon.
Cover with melted butter and serve immediately.
