Cod Liver, a forgotten superfood

This was my snack today at tea time: cod liver from Norway (unfortunately, canned). This was the very first time I had this, so I expected a very fishy taste. But thankfully, its taste is very mild, it resembles duck foie gras! I ate it as-is, but I watched a recipe about it over at Martha Stewart’s website (by an Icelandic chef), and the consensus is that it tastes like “lite” foie gras. A lot of D3 and vitamin A in it too, one of these superfoods that people never eat. Even better when fermented. Considering that this is much healthier than non-wild, forced-fed ducks and that it costs about 30x cheaper than true foie gras, I think it’s a great choice.
