Lutefisk is a perversely Minnesota/Wisconsin dish. A twisted "remembrance" of Scandanavian immigration. Basically cod soaked in barrels of lye, to "preserve" the fish on the long row over the pond in the mid to late 1800's. Typically served in the season between Thanksgiving and Christmas in the basements of Lutheran churches. The meal consists of Lutefisk (which has, at best, a gelatinous texture and the taste of buttered soap), white potatos, turnips and parsnips, lime jello with marshmallows and carrot shreads blended in, coffee, and angel food cake with lingonberry topping. You MUST be 70 years old to be admitted to this meal from Hades. Folks back in the Home Lands would not touch this stuff with a 10 foot whale spear.
I'll stick with the Hostess Twinkies, thank you...
