Lutefisk Food Products
Tested over time and trusted because of the name, Olsen Fish Company has positioned itself as one of the leading Lutefisk producers in the world. Lutefisk, which means lyefish, refers to the early process of soaking the fish. Today, however, Olsen Fish Company believes its process has given Lutefisk a new meaning–one that represents family, fellowship and good times.
Made from genuine Norwegian Ling cod from the beautiful small towns along the Northern Atlantic Coast, our Lutefisk is time-honored, nutritious and ecologically sustainable. We feature four different brands of Lutefisk including Olsen’s, Viking, Kemps and Mike’s, all of which have their own distinct and unique recipe preserved throughout our history.
We offer Lutefisk that is both skinless and boneless and it is sold fresh or frozen. It is commonly referred to as Kettle Ready, which means it is ready to cook. It is always hand graded and hand packed at just the right time. This is a form of art versus a form of science.
Olsen Fish Company’s fresh Lutefisk brands are packed fresh daily during our peak season of September through Mid May, but can be available any time of the year. Our frozen Lutefisk products are available for purchase year-round. We also provide a wide variety of packaging options to suit your needs. You can purchase fresh, full Lutefisk fillets in 50lb. or 25lb. bulk containers, or we have a considerable selection of retail-ready vacuum packed options that offer a longer shelf life.
A Delicacy Steeped in History
We know precisely the time of year when climatic conditions in northern Norway are perfect for catching and drying our fish. The Stockfish we use for producing Olsen Fish Company Lutefisk is caught during the course of a few hectic winter and spring months where the fresh catch is cleaned, filleted and dried in sanitary drying rooms. With complete environmental controls we eliminate any food safety risks and it guarantees us the best quality that we desire, despite the additional cost. We believe that the highest quality Lutefisk is produced from the Stockfish coming from this region and it is worth the extra effort.
