I can't edit for some reason on this computer/browser. Anyway, hog fish are INCREDIBLY stupid. I swam right up to one once, put the spear tip next to its head (while it was eating) and shot it. Felt kind of bad but at least it got it's last meal. They are also a fish that can change their sex during their lifetime. I personally think the terminal males are the prettiest. It's a very obvious change. They kind of remind me of a fish version of a sulpha-crested cockatoo.

Homemade chili for chili dogs, topped with chopped onion and Famous Dave's spicy pickle relish; wavy potato chips for scooping the dripS.

Thanks for the info Med. I did some googling and found pictures. How do they compare with taste to Lion Fish? Dawgluver raves about them. I'd love to try both.

Looks good, medtran and kgirl!

I had a big lunch today, so I just nibbled on a small scoop of chicken salad with wheat crackers, and a couple of dill pickle spears.

Hogfish

I never heard of them until I started reading Wayne Stinnet's books about a man living in the Florida Keys.

I did a little freezer fishing and came up with a tub of homemade spaghetti sauce. Down to one last precious container now. We had the sauce over whole wheat noodles after a salad full of extras. Ruined a perfectly healthful meal with a sticky pecan roll. Can't send Himself to the store for one thing and not have him come back with a number of off-list purchases.

Hog fish is absolutely delicious! We first ate it on an island that was somewhere around Key West. Stock Island I think.

Tonight we had lobster bisque made with cognac, which was nice, and a pizza, which was meh.

Never tried Lionfish, though I've heard it's also a pretty mild tasting fish. We really don't eat a lot of fish anymore since we aren't diving and catching it ourselves, and I've never seen it anywhere we shop so we can see it raw, plus we very rarely eat any kind of seafood at a restaurant anymore other than a sushi place that is highly recommended and passes health inspections with flying colors (they post results on-line here).

Is there a season on hog fish? It's always open season on lion fish as they're a predatory import. They're speared as well.

As I recall, hog fish have a similar taste, being very mild. I don't do "fishy" tasting fish, but happily gobble down either hog or lion!
