1/2 lb. butter melted

Directions:
Directions:
Rinse fish thoroughly in cold water. Cut in serving size pieces. Remove scales from any skin which you have not removed. If desired, tie the fish in cheesecloth for cooking since it is very tender and will break apart. Place in cool salted water in four or five quart saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook for approximately 10 minutes or until tender and translucent. Remove gently and serve with generous amounts of melted butter.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I remember going to church with mom and grandma in Chippewa and we ate lunch there. My whole plate was white, but included meatballs, peas in white sauce, mashed potatoes, and something that spelled fishy. I remember that grandma was not too happy with me, because I would not try it. That had to be Lutefisk.
