Do You Eat Kangaroo?

I have eaten kangaroo once or twice in the past...both times in a restaurant, fillet sliced with a nice sauce like plum etc

Today I bought some kangaroo sausages for the first time

I was talking to mum on the phone today and told her about them and she said that she has never and would never eat "Skippy"

That she would not eat one of our National Emblems

Just wondering what everyone else's views were on eating kangaroo, if you can actually get it over there

I've never tried it but I would if I could. We don't get Kangaroo in SA. What's it like?

I've never seen kangaroo for sale here, but it's a big country I would try it.

Bald eagles are a threatened species, so it's illegal to catch or kill them.

I don't have any inkling to try it. I'm pretty happy with the basic meats.

Never had the opportunity, but I have no aversion to trying it.

HA!

I would definitely try it if I found it on a menu or in a market! I love to try new meats

Never had it, and chances are never will. But for those who are interested a quick search offers some good looking piece of kangaroo meat shiped to your home. Price is another story.

Yes, I was thinking that the cost to get it over there would be too high

It was made legal here in Oz back in 1980 to be able to consume kangaroo meat.

It is a very meaty taste, it is also very lean meat, so quite low in saturated fat, which is good
