How does nutria taste? Is there a right way to cook them?
Surely someone has tried them, out of curiosity or maybe out of necessity, especially places where there is a bounty incentive to cull them. Has someone tried to cook them, and what did you make out of the meat?

They're basically a water rat.

Originally imported to the southern U.S. as a potential food and fur stock animal, nutria's never caught on with the public like they did in South America. The fact that they are a rodent probably had something to do with that, though they are said to be quite tasty. They are used in the deep south as an inexpensive food source, but I have never tasted it (that I know about). I would like to try it at least once.

Myocaster coypus is not consideered a delicacy here, or even a staple. There are other countries that do, you should ask in those countries. Or call Shrek.
