Sandefjord Smør is a simple butter sauce used with different fish recipes in Norway. Sandefjord is a coastal city 2 hours from our capital Oslo, and “smør” translates to butter in English. You can use this sauce with salmon, cod and most known Scandinavian fish meals. It’s similar to béarnaise or hollandaise sauce, but not as strong in spices. Just a simple mix of heavy cream and butter, with a touch of lemon and coriander.
