Baton Rouge-based chef explains how to cook (and enjoy) nutria


"The best and quickest way is to take the hind saddle, bone-in, and put a honey mustard dressing on it with brown sugar, then put it on a barbecue pit. Anyone who knows how to barbecue will know how to cook it, just like pork. I guarantee you that everyone will love to eat it."

Philippe Parola, a Baton Rouge-based chef, on the best way to cook a Louisiana nutria, as quoted in Modern Farmer. Parola specializes in recipes involving invasive species, including the American alligator and the Asian carp.
