    had a taste of lionfish once, it tastes like any white fish, bland if not well seasoned. great substitute for other white fish if you ask me. I’m really looking forward to that meatball, I don’t give a d**n if that is grown in a test tube or it has an eye in its early development, all I’m gonna do is eat it and cherish the moment of having been the first generation to eat cultivated meat balls.

    Lionfish is pretty bland, perfect for strong seasonings. I’m really intrigued with vegan burgers and testtube meatballs.

  3. This is the first time I heard of test tube meatballs. Also that FULL VEGAN burger. Really excited about the future of the food industry. All this innovation for more sustainable food sources. Wow! such a time to be alive.

    would like to try the vegan burger, if they say it tastes like real beef then we are living in the future. just imagine eating plant-based meat with real meat goodness. all we need is flying cars and space travel and that would be the dream.

    lionfish is good. real good!. I once was invited for a fishing trip with my guy friends, turns out its spearfishing with a scuba team. they trained us, beginners, the basic signs and how to breathe from a tank. caught a bunch of lobsters and other colorful fish and of course, we ate what we caught as a sign of respect for the lives we took. and that is when i tasted lionfish, cleaned filleted grilled to perfection. flakey and oh so flavorful…

    eating meat is not the problem, companies that produce meat are.
    why can’t we just get back to hunting our own food.
    just think about it,
    all them lazy ass will get exercise.
    you will only starve if you don’t work for it.
    we will be forced to eat plants because not all are capable to hunt.
    we will all learn to share thus end world hunger.
    and the most important point I have, no need for money!
    we will all just trade goods that we need. no more money to control our greed.

    and I can’t give up bacon. just CAN’T!

    Since I am a meat-eater, I would never say that a veggie burger is necessarily better than a meaty, bacon-loaded burger with melty cheese on top, but I would say they’re just different – you can’t really compare the two. If in the future, all we can eat is a veggie burger, I will just add cheese and egg to that and I guess I’m fine. 🙂

    Debilitating, painful arthritis and fibromyalgia spurred an overhaul in my diet and gave me a reason to try anti-inflammatory meal planning. My life was going nowhere and death looked promising. So, I gave up meat, dairy, all grains (including bread, rice and pasta), potatoes, sugar, and alcohol. My arthritis pain has all but gone away! To stem cravings for non-plant-based foods I still hunt for milk and cheese substitutes that are organic, highly nutritious (good fats, fiber, calcium, protein, and probiotics), and non-plastic containers, but the food industry has a way to go in developing plant-based replacements for traditional dining. I’ve tested experimental foods now on the market, and, though some taste quite good, they lack nutrition, and most are not organic. Utilizing protein foods like peas and nuts is a hopeful innovation, but it has a way to go. And we need grain substitutes, as grains are a great part of conventional recipes, but are highly inflammatory. If you ask me there is a great potential for investment in a food revolution supporting plant-based foods that are easy to prepare, highly nutritious, organic, delicious, anti-inflammatory, traditional, and minimally packaged in non-plastic containers.

    I tried a piece of chicken last night, and my joints ache this morning for the first time in a long time. I can’t go back. The anti-inflammatory diet helps prevent cancer and auto-immune diseases and can increase our lifespan. Seniors are begging for foods that make pain pills unnecessary. Customers of every age look for foods that are environmentally neutral and life-prolonging. Where are the people with money willing to invest in THE food revolution? This comment is your mission statement!

  10. First, the Tag vegan for this article is wrong. Secondly, are there any numbers out there how many lion fish exists and how much they eat per day? Without proved by numbers this article leads to a wrong conclusion. For me it sounds just like an excuse to still eat fish instead of dropping it completely so that overfishing can be stoppend. Well, its the same mechanism like only eating organic meat.
