Episode 5 — Mattaaq Soup & Couscous Salad
Oleepeeka loves eating mattaaq in new ways and she prepares a stew that is easy to eat, especially great for elders who have a difficult time chewing. Mattaaq is a delicacy. It’s the skin of the whale and is so versatile that it can be eaten raw or boiled to soften it. This creative dish features mattaaq in a couscous salad.
