Nutria its for dinner !!!!



Log in to see fewer ads
Howdy fellas, while fishing the other day I saw several nutria and was reflecting on when I first herd of eating them and decided to try them .
I deboned and ground the meat , cooked it down with onions and bell pepper then mix it with cooked long grain rice and seasoned to taste.
Not bad eating!
If any body else has any experience with nutria please share.
I am wanting to cook more.

Sounds like an awful lot of work.

Work out a trade program w/ the local gator farm? 1# of gator cutlets for every 5# of whole nutria? What else are they going to do w/ the gator meat, they're only after the hides anyway, right?

whats for dinner

During WW II they would collect the Muskrats from the trappers in Michigan and cook it up and feed it to the factory workers, I know times were tougher back then. But I trap and always thought the meat on the rats looked really good, they eat mostly vegetation? To of my favorite game animals to eat are grey squirrels and cottontail rabbits, brown them good on the stove, put in a roaster with carrots and onions and put in oven till meat falls off the bone. Don't see any difference in the three? Had a aunt that would take all the coons I caught and have a coon feed at my folks little country bar back in the day. Now coon are like living garbage machines but she knew what she was doing and always had a large crowd the night of the coon feed. So if you did a good job cooking up the Nutria I bet they would be tasty. Just depends how hungry you are.

We used to have an annual party. We'd cook three pigs, fifty chickens, five gallons of jambalaya, and more.

One year Sheriff Harry Lee, God Rest his soul, dropped off a bunch of cleaned Nutria that his deputies had culled from the canal banks.

We seasoned and smoked them with the chickens.

Most God Awe full meat I ever tasted.

Don't put them in a smoker.

Maybe dirty rice ?

I've eaten muskrat and it's good. Beaver is really good. De-bone it, pound the meat, salt, pepper, roll in flour and fry it in bacon grease.

Porkchop, at the rate nutria multiply, you may have hit on a solution to world hunger!

I never saw any in the five years I lived in Louisiana. If I had seen any, you can bet my 10/22 would have gotten a workout.

A little side note: I always liked it how "nutria rat" ended up getting shortened so it was pronounced "nutra-rat."

I was raised just west of Abilene, TX. We had a circus that came to town every summer when I was in high school. There was a guy with the circus that had a nutria in a cage that offered money for anyone that could tell him what the exotic animal was. We didn't have any nutria in our area but my brother and I knew what they were and told the guy it was a nutria. He got mad and told us we didn't know what we were talking about and wouldn't pay us our money. I've eaten armadillo but never a nutria.

I remember back in college, one of my buddies went to a carnival. One of the tents there featured "Cambodian Killer Rats." He said he paid the money to go in and see them, even though he knew he was being taken. When he got in the tent, there were two nutria sitting in a cage, munching on their food. He said he went out of there rolling on the floor laughing.
