"If you put enough melted butter on it,...

... it tastes like melted butter."

Lutefisk: Wisconsin's Toxic Tradition. But allegedly less toxic than it once was. Sorta like absinthe, but without the green fairy.

As 16-year-old Cody Millikin said of Norwegian cod cooked in lye:
It's like Jell-O. It jiggles. It's not like what fish is supposed to be like. But, whatever."
Fortunately for this noble tradition, "the Wisconsin Legislature voted to exempt lutefisk from toxic-substance disclosure laws."

No mention of the turpentine. Oh. Wait...Never mind: that's a Door County Fish Boil.
