What is cod foie gras?
Cod foie gras is a pâté made from cod. Our producer uses Nordic cod 'Gadus Morhua' in particular, which is finely minced and then mixed with butter and various spices. The mixture is then placed in a mould and left to set. Its pinkish-beige colour is a sign of the absolute freshness of the raw material used, which is caught in the cold waters of Iceland.
Cooking with cod foie gras
Cod foie gras is often preferred by Italians, as it is an original variation on traditional foie gras, which uses goose or duck liver instead. Cod foie gras can be served as an excellent and good starter, very versatile and perfect for creating an original presentation.
We can safely skip the preparation of the foie gras itself, as the product is perfectly desalted and ready to use. It can be used as a topping for crackers, canapés or croutons. In the latter case, it is spread on thin slices of bread, preferably warmed to soften the foie gras. It can be accompanied by a glass of white wine or a light beer and served with mature or fresh cheese. In addition to hors d'oeuvres, cod foie gras is an excellent accompaniment to pasta and risotto.
