"Because some things in life has to be tried" ..

So from the ( long ) list of "How I ruin myself" here "method #876 : buy something from Iceland" ..

There we go ..

For those who don't know this is what Hakarl is, otherwise known as "putrified shark meat".

Now I need to get a bottle of vodka and prepare some stuff to try it :lol:

Bitafiskur is really nice, tried a bit of it, lovign it so far.

Ah, I already tried a while ago Surmstromming, it stinks like fish left in a well used toilet for months but the taste is absolutely wonderful, I love it :)

Ah of course I am an "expert" in Valencay cheese as well, so good.

But now I am very curious to know how Hakarl tastes.

Good to see that you got hold of it - and that it was worth the effort :-)

Reminds me of the time I ate several bags of ultra-salted dried squid given to me as a new year's greeting by the patriarch of a Chinese family living downstairs. Shark may be different, but I wouldn't know. Sharks taken quickly and unawares most likely result in the least stress-hormones being retained in those fossilized food packets.
