Ok, so its not a 'true' desert, but it is some very impressive sand dunes? I'll have to try to find it in many years time if I manage to persuade my wife that a cross Canada trip is something we want to do.
There is one true desert in Canada, in the interior of BC. I hope to see this sometime too.
Cod cheeks should be on the list too!! And those little salty smoked fish (like smelt) that goes with beer, can't remember the name, wonder why?? But they were good...someone will remember. :) :) Great trip, enjoy!!
Capelin - they come smoked, fried, dried or roasted.
But the way I like them best is have a couple of beer, then roast the little suckers over a campfire.
Fishermans brews is good - fresh fish and brews(hard bread that has been soaked and heated) mixed together with the drippings from fried salt pork poured over it. May not meet a heart friendly diet requirement.
Fish and brews is salt fish, served with brew (the hard bread again - its better than it sounds) and potato.
Moose can be really good, but you can't get it everywhere, and the quality varies from animal to animal. It is usually tougher than beef, and preparation is absolutely key.
