Three cheers for our brothers to the frozen north who have taken to eating the finest meat of all – cute meat.
From NY DailyNews:
Seal meat – from the same snuggly-looking sea mammals that are a pet cause of animal activists – is quite the culinary delicacy north of the border, where it’s served up seared and rare in fine restaurants, much like a loin of beef, The New York Times reports.
The “handful” of restaurants in Canada that serve seal have become unexpected tourist attractions, thanks to a European Union ban on imports of commercially caught Canadian seal products, the Times article states.
A little known fact about seal meat: They use heavy steel clubs to tenderize it.
