So, what is mink?

Mink is a carnivorous mammal known for its silky and luxurious fur, but it's also an unconventional food ingredient with a unique flavor profile. Mink meat is a lean and protein-rich source that is commonly used in traditional Nordic cuisine. The meat has a gamey taste that's similar to venison, with a hint of fishiness due to the minks' aquatic diet. Its texture is tender and succulent, making it a versatile ingredient that can be prepared in various ways. However, due to concerns over animal welfare, mink meat is not widely available, and its consumption is limited to specific regions and cultures.
