before I get lynch-mobbed, stoned and stampeded to death by some of you tree huggin hippie freaks for even slightly promoting the idea of killing whales to enjoy their meat....

I was given a small can of such by a co-worker who had returned from Japan recently. he suggested serving this with rice which sounds good, although he said he's never had whale meat before (his wife does).

anyone ever had some? what do you cook up to complement it?

what goes well with it: red wine? white? beer? light beer? water? milk? lowfat...?
