Andrew Zimmern’s Family Meals

Slide 2 of 12

Kenai Peninsula; Soldotna, Alaska

“This was a memorable experience—dinner with author DJ Blatchford and her family. We tried “Muktuk,” a dish of frozen whale skin and blubber made from beluga and bowhead whales, which is nearly 88 percent fat, 11 percent protein and 1 percent carbs. They dip it in a whale oil, which is made with whale fat and fermented. Blubbery, pungent...this isn’t something I’m looking forward to eating again.”
