15 Canadian delicacies you have to try


Cod tongue

Fried Atlantic cod tongue is a delicacy in Newfoundland and Labarador. It is generally cut into bite-size pieces before it is breaded and fried. The tongue (in fact, a small muscle from the neck of the fish) is often served with scrunchions—nuggets of fried pork fat and salt. Though it was once found in abundance, it has become luxury since Canada introduced a moratorium on cod fishing in the 1990s.
