I don't have a period answer, but some comments from my husband who
ate it growing up in Newfoundland:

"It's a red meat, it's a bit greasy (meat itself is lean, the fat is
in clumps and it is this fat that creates the fishy taste), a slight
fishy taste (depending on how much fat you get cleaned off), texture
of beef.

"Sloppy Seal" - cooked & mixed with bbq sauce (same as Sloppy Joes)
was a favorite at our house.

Bake covered with salt pork fat, onions, turnip, carrots.

Can be canned (pressure cooked ) with a bit of onion & salt pork.

I personally love it."
