I have been wanting to do this for a while before I arrived in Iceland, and today I had both the chance and courage to do so.
Hákarl – or fermented shark, is a local delicacy I guess you could say… there are those that love it, and then most normal people hate it. :D
It is made from Greenland or Sleeper Shark. Once caught it is buried for a while, and then hung to ferment for months on end… Check out Bizarre Foods youtube clip on Hákarl here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KL9xuTsfdE
It really was not as bad as what I thought it would be. Another thing ticked off the bucket list… Hákarl – Yummo!
