"Sea-sooty?" The "best of meats," according to the eddic poem Grímnismál:

In Eldhrimnir
Andhrimnir cooks
Sæhrimnir's seething flesh, —
The best of food,
but few men know
on what fare the warriors feast.
— Bellows trans.

Snorri Sturluson interprets this stanza as a boar which is boiled each day and is whole by evening. He who roasts it is named Andhrímnir, and the pot is called Eldhrímnir. Snorri says that the flesh of the animal shall never fail to feed the vast multitude of einherjar.
