Have some smoked Reindeer!!! Eeks!! You might say but hang on a minute. Do you know that Reindeer meat is the fastest growing sector in the Finnish food industry?
According to a certain website, Reindeer meat has a unique taste of the wild (yeap.. it's classified as Game meat) and yet it has a fine texture and is tender. On top of that, it has extremely low fat content!
All right, before you start shooting me down for eating Rudolph, I have to put the blame on my dear brother who was blogging about the Reindeer meat he tasted (Yeah Brother I'm pointing my finger at you! Hahaha..). Check out his post (scroll a little down the post to catch a glimpse of Smoked Reindeer!).
For those who are feeling adventurous and do have some Reindeer meat stashed away in your igloo somewhere, check out some recipes for Reindeer Steak!
Just in case you are not convinced, Reindeer meat is a staple of the Sami (who inhabit the Kola Peninsular in Russia, Northernmost Finland, inland region of Northern Norway and parts of Sweden from Idre onwards) . Read it here.
Ho ho ho.. oops. Who took my reindeers???
