Animal Planet’s ‘Eating The Enemy’ – Watch STRETCH Turn Invasive Species Into Flavorful Meals.

Animal Planet's Eating the Enemy.A good watch is the Animal Planet’s new show “Eating the Enemy.” The show’s premise is simple – send restaurant owner STRETCH into an area dealing with an invasive species (asian carp and wild boar) and he’ll develop a menu item using it. STRETCH doesn’t create the entree on his own; he meets with local chefs to discover the seasonings to use, helps catch the main course and then prepares a meal at a local restaurant hoping they’ll add it to their menu. In the first episode, STRETCH makes sliders using asian carp (or “Bayou bass”) as his main ingredient. I didn’t watch the second episode about hunting and preparing wild boars in Texas.

If you get a chance, check out “Eating the Enemy.” The show next airs on December 31st. A nice bonus of the show is that they cut to the chase and keep it to 30 minutes. [Animal Planet]

    The “bayou bass” looked appealingly, delicious! Where can I find this appetizing cusine?

  2. I can’t remember the name of the Louisiana restaurant that was serving it. Not sure if the show has been picked up by Animal Planet but if it is, they’ll hopefully post the recipe online.
