Default Whale-steak wok with hot plantain and vegetables

I had little stuff in the fridge today, so I took what I had. Some whale-meat, different vegetables, and offcourse, plantain. The contrast of the whale meat and the plantain-taste was delicious. Whale-meat is probably not on the market in the states, but you could also use regular beef.

1. Slice your plantains into bite-size pieces. Put on some salt, pepper, and a little sprinkle of chilli. Fry this in your pan for a minute or two on high heat. It's important to use high heat to "close" the pieces. Remember to stir. Afterwards, put the plantains aside temporarly.

2. Slice the whale/beef into bite size pieces or a little larger. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and fry in the pan on medium-high while stirring for about 3-4 minutes. Turn down the heat on low.

3. These are the veggies I use: Red peppers, yellow peppers, squash, chopped carrots, broccollli, and rootabaga. Chop up the veggies. I also add a dash of creamed ginger, soy sauce, and garlic. Put this in the fying pan with the whale/beef. Again, important to stir the mix.

4. Also add the plantains to the frying pan with the whale & veggies. Let this simmer for about 5-10 minutes.

5. Serve with a good red-wine and rice as a side dish!

What kind of whale meat is it? I've heard it tastes similar to beef, but more tender.

It's Minke-whale, wich is one of the larger whale-species. You're right. It's very tender like a sirloin steak, and has kind of a seafood-taste. Lots of omega-3, so it's very good for you too. I think I am the first one in Norway to try whale with plantain, but I sure reccomend it!

Maybe we should feed some cows 'krill' for 6 months and then see how the meat tastes..

Hi mr Bungalow,

I've just read your recipee and you mentioned about the omega 3. I'dd like to ad that big fish also contain too much lead, kwik and pcb's, and those, on the other side, are quite dangerous.
Its better to eat small, fat, fast growing fish, as they create a nice balance between your omega 6 and omega 3.

Greets,
Gunther

I thought it is a small, fat and fast growing fish. A big salmon?

The higher up in the food-chain you are, the more toxins. This has nothing to do with the size of the fish, but what it eats. A 50 lb grass-carp is lower in the food-chain than a 1 lb mackerell. Farmed salmon is very safe, since the main constituents in the feed comes from chilean/Peruvian herring from the south pacific. Supposed to be some of the cleanest waters in the world. The oils in the feed nowadays are mainly vegetable-based. Don't believe Putins' BS. He's just mad cause he can't exploit Norways' polar areas.

According to the norwegian department of food-safety, the limits of PCB and quicksilver in whale-meat is at an acceptable level. But then again, I have heard alot is accumulated in fat, not muscle-tissue.

As a good dutchman, I prefer a raw fresh herring, said to be very healthy.

Something about eating whale just doesn't seem all that appetizing.

Maybe a cow would taste better?
