Agutuk or “Eskimo Ice Cream”
My students taught me how to make this one.
- 1lb boiled, shredded halibut (or other white fish if you don’t regularly go halibut fishing in Homer, AK)
- 3 pounds Crisco shortening (sometimes made with whale or seal fat, but those are hard to find)
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 gallon of wild hand-picked berries from the arctic (or from your freezer section if you don’t live in Alaska)
- Combine the shortening, oil, and sugar and whip into an exotic frenzy. Mix in the fish and berries and wear a parka while eating for authenticity.
4-12 servings depending on how much you like it.
