Lion fish on the menu in the Bahamas?

bdachow | May 5, 201012:59 PM     18

For some strange reason, I've been noticing an uptick in articles about restaurants serving lionfish. With the latest being the Chicago Tribune.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/travel/...

It mentions a couple of restaurants in the Bahamas that serve it on their menu if it's available. I am curious what the local chowhounds think about it and what their favourite preparation method is? I'm coming into Nassau on a cruise ship closer to the end of the month and would be interested in trying that and conch (sadly I only have a Saturday in Nassau). I've seen the conch thread and am likely to try and hit the stalls under the bridge for maximum chow in minimal travel. Is it worth it to try and search out a place that serves lionfish as well or is it nothing special?

Thanks in advance!!
