Things I Plan to Eat in Iceland
Puffin Whale Reindeer Guillemot Lamb Salted cod Skyr The one thing I will probably avoid will be Harkarl, rotten shark meat that’s buried under rocks for three months so ammonia and acids leak away, then hung outside for another three months. It’s supposed to be one of the most vile, disgusting foods on the planet, so I don’t think I’ll try it. But we’ll see.
