Cooking Features

Cod liver sandwiches are prepared according to different recipes, often very different from each other, there is no uniform technology for their preparation. However, the snack will be tastier and more appetizing, if you follow the recommendations of experienced chefs.

  • Be careful when choosing a cod liver in a store. Pay attention to the weight not only of the canned food itself, but also of the “dry part”, that is, the cod liver itself. With a total weight of canned food of 230-240 g, the weight of the liver itself varies from 60 g to 120 g. If it is less than 40-50% of the total mass, it is worth refraining from buying. On sale you can find not only natural liver, but also products called “Murmansk cod liver”, “Cod liver and caviar”. For the preparation of sandwiches, if they do not require oil from the can, such canned food is suitable, but the snack with them will be less tasty and healthy.
  • Both white and rye bread are suitable for making cod liver sandwiches, the choice depends on the recipe used. Bread must be lightly dried, so that it does not absorb oil. You can do this in the oven or toaster. Some cooks make the bread slightly stale just by leaving it in the open air.
  • If you are preparing closed sandwiches, you can hold them under pressure for some time, so that when serving, they are more compact and convenient to use.
  • It is not recommended to make cod liver sandwiches long before serving, but you can prepare a lot for spreading on bread in advance by putting it in a glass jar with a lid and putting it in the refrigerator.
