boneless snapping turtle meat

Historically prized and considered a delicacy in some cultures, snapping turtle remains a popular gourmet food in parts of America, Europe, China and Singapore.

Most popular for soups and stews, turtle meat evokes a range of flavor profiles from beef to pork to reminiscent of fish depending on the part of the animal from where the meat was butchered.

Turtle meat pairs well with ingredients such as sherry (and sherry vinegar), lime, egg and fennel, spices including nutmeg and allspice, and herbs like marjoram, basil, chervil and savory.

This fresh water snapping turtle is wild caught in either Iowa or Georgia, depending on seasonality.
