Nanna mentions whale meat in her book
Icelandic Food & Cookery.

There really aren't any surviving early period Norse recipes of any  
The latest TI which arrived today talks about Norse foods.

There are traditional recipes for whale meat.

Apparently they also ate
whale meat during WWII in Britain and there were recipes created then  
no one knew what to do with it. Those might be findable.
