Seagull eggs and caribou: a hunting lunch in Nunavut
"Seagull eggs are actually one of the more tasty eggs around," says Iqaluit resident Franco Buscemi. He's gathered the eggs from a nearby cliff for a campfire meal.
He's hunting with his friend Justin, a trained chef, who cooks up a feast at their campsite. What's on the menu?
- The dark orange seagull eggs are fried up with Caribou tunuuq (fat)
- Caribou meat, caught in Rankin
- Whitefish netted in Yellowknife
"It's free range, and I mean free range," says Justin. And it doesn't need any salt or spices. It's sweet. "It is what it eats. And it eats a lot of flowers and vegetation and stuff."
