The Norwegian delicacy known as lutefisk appears harmless enough, looking like the kind of seafood dish served at Red Lobster. That is until one discovers that lutefisk is cod soaked in lye for days at a time. Yes, lye! The same kind of lye that can burn your skin and is used in heavy-duty cleaning solutions, yet miraculously deemed fit for human consumption. Why even bother eating lutefisk? Because by that logic, you may as well microwave some Gorton’s fish sticks and dip them in Liquid Plumber!
