Your PETA pie in the face

This has been a busy week for the eco terrorist at Peta. First one guy lights himself on fire and dies a horrible and painful death to stop the sell of furs at a Portland store. and then A Peta member gets arrested for throwing pie in the face of a Canadian minister, and now Peta gets a little pie in their own face… And for good measure I have this recipe.

Flipper pie is a Canadian dish made from seal flippers. It is specific to Newfoundland and commonly eaten at Easter.

The tender meat of the seal flipper, carrots & turnip are blended in a thick gravy, topped with a biscuit crust.

Flipper pie is not an everyday meal...but it does make a nice Sunday dinner, or a special occasion meal. The meat is dark, oily and gamey. The flavour is similar to that of hare, but it is much richer and denser in texture.

Newfoundland Flipper Pie


2 seal flippers
1 small turnip, cubed
3 carrots , sliced
2 onions, sliced
1 parsnip, sliced
2 ½ cups water
1 ½ oz screech
½ fat back pork
2 tbsp vinegar

1 ½ cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
small pat of butter


I think I’ll make a cart full and sell them at the circus
