Devil fish served as burger meat in southern Mexico

They don’t look good.
And they fight against destiny.
But, they are a delicacy, at least for the gourmets in Mexico’s southern state of Tabasco.

“Yes, it works for some, but the radicals say, I will not return to your restaurant anymore! It is a rather complicated situation. There are customers saying, I will not pay for it, for it is ugly and cheap fish. I will not pay and don’t even mention a burger. (However) It is a source of income for our fishermen, and an example of how we can combat a plague.”

Jammed between a burger, the devil fish taste soft and fresh.
However, the other side of the story is that the marine warrior often breaks fishing nets with their stiff skin and sharp fins.

Experts do not see the species as a pest, but it is a headache for the fishermen.
The solution is to send them to the dining table.

“This is devil fish burger. If you can’t beat the enemy, eat it!”
