    It’s not poisonous it’s venomous. Big difference!

    I understand what you say, Anderson, but yes, it is a terrible, incredible
    problem. Some specimens are even 47 cm/18.5 inches in size, so imagine how
    many other fish they had eaten to reach such size. Google about the
    invasion, you’ll see that is a true catastrophe. And thanks for sharing the
    facts you brought!

    I had a lion fish as a pet so watching this was sad for me. But I
    understand that there population needs to be controlled. My lion fish would
    eat like 6 gold fish in a minute

    I carry a container with me which has an inverted funnel and holds even 20
    lionfish in each dive (you rarely get more than that number in a given
    dive). But your method sounds interesting, perhaps for areas that have a
    bigger problem than us currently in Cayman Islands.

    grilled and fried works perfectly too. Some people like it in ceviche but
    the meat is a bit sweet for that purpose, in my opinion. The microwave is a
    wonderful tool but notice I play with the settings. If you just put the
    time and press start, the microwave is in the highest potency, so things
    became horrible. I should be preparing another video soon, on how to fillet
    it.

    is this a joke lol ?

    I just read that in some places lionfish have wiped out 80% of of local
    fish species. Really tragic. Now I want to eat them! I think I’ll use a
    grill or pan though for this recipe, not a big fan of the microwave. Great
    prep video!

    @KrazyKid1110 yes mate, garlic rules!

    You are a biologist by any chance? I say it because of you investigating
    what species of fish the lion had been eating isn’t something people do
    commonly.

    Yeah Gerardo! GARLIC!!!

  20. Gerardo Ochoa-VargasNovember 25, 2013 at 3:14 pmReply

    @teamunreel19 entirely serious. One of the best fish you can eat, grouper
    quality. Why would you assume this is a joke?

  21. Gerardo Ochoa-VargasNovember 25, 2013 at 4:00 pmReply

    @KrazyKid1110 I should guess it. Great nick!

    No Kevin. The fish is venomous, not poisonous. That means that it stings
    with its venomous spines, but once you take them out (as I did) there are
    safe for consumption. I’d be cautious with those around Puerto Rico and
    Virgin Islands due to the presence of ciguatera in those waters, but you’d
    better ask locals if you visit those places.
