Lion Fish is #3 in the posted article.

Nutria is #2. Nutria is a huge swamp rat. It is all over the swampy areas of the Gulf Coast. Lots in Texas, even where I grew up near Galveston. It lives along the banks of creeks, bays, bayous.

They hold Nutria barbecues often. I've never partaken, nor has anyone I know or grew up with...just a bit over the line to me.

However, Lion Fish, as I wrote, is quite delicate and delicious. Better if you can persuade someone else to scale and clean it.
