Seal: It’s What’s For Dinner

There’s a controversy up in the Great White North about whether restaurants ought to be serving seal meat.  Personally, if you’re killing the animal for the fur, what’s the sense in wasting the rest of the animal if people want to eat it?

He has since taken a deep, almost protective interest in the way seal reaches his restaurant, traveling to the islands to meet the hunters, and visiting the abattoir where the meat is butchered. Mr. Lenglet also sought out local purveyors who could smoke the meat.

You can smoke seal?  Hey, I have a smoker now.  Seal BBQ anyone?  Apparently it has a somewhat fishy taste, which is odd for a mammal, but I’m guessing it’s because seals eat mainly fish.

    That’s reason enough to kill them. They compete with man for our dwindling fish stocks.

    The adults do have an overwhelming fishy taste, but the baby seals, particularly their eyeballs, taste somewhat like bald eagle.

    And the liver kind of reminds me of Spotted Owl liver. Or is that White-Crested Woodpecker liver?
