Gordon Ramsay Hunts For Lionfish To Cook | Season 1 Ep. 4 | THE F WORD


[music playing] GORDON RAMSAY
(VOICEOVER): This is Florida, a state known for as
hot sun and amazing seafood. But in these crystal blue
waters, an unwelcome predator, the lion fish, threatens
the very ecosystem that makes this place so incredible. I’m going to meet Eric
and Grace who are a husband and wife team, and they
dedicate their life hunting down this fish. GORDON RAMSAY (VOICEOVER):
Dumped into the waters by careless aquarium
owners, these predators belong in the Indian Ocean,
not in the Florida Keys. This lion fish is a pest. GORDON RAMSAY
(VOICEOVER): We speed off the coast of Islamorada in
hopes of taking some of them out. Then I’ll show Eric
and Grace how to cook them into a delicious meal. Here is our target. So you can see
these dorsal spikes. It’s almost like a
hypodermic needle. – Bloody hell.
– And this– Oh, you can see. That holds the venom. You can see it. And how dangerous is
this sort of venom? What does it feel like? Yeah, what does it feel like? I, unfortunately, have
been hit many times. – You serious?
– You know, big, bald– It’s awful. –tattoo, muscle guy was
crying like a little baby. It was bad.
– Gee. But we’re not going
to get stung today. – No.
– No. Not today.
– Wow. GORDON RAMSAY
(VOICEOVER): I’ve been diving for more than
20 years, but never with a mission like this. 80 feet to the ocean
floor, and the hunt begins. To really make a
difference in this fight, we need to find the
biggest fish, the ones that do the most damage to the reef. Eric spots some movement
amongst the rocks. [music playing] His instincts have paid off. We’re able to find several big
ones, and we take them out. This small part of the reef
is safe for the moment. It’s time to ascend. That was incredible. Woo! Look at the size of that one. Oh, my god. Look at the size on this. [music playing] A beast. Wow. GORDON RAMSAY
(VOICEOVER): I’m thrilled about the size of my catch. I’m no stranger to diving, but
I’ve never felt such a rush. Look at that. [bleep] that’s ugly, huh? [music playing] GORDON RAMSAY (VOICEOVER):
We’ve done a small part to help save this incredible ecosystem. Now it’s time to turn
these harmful creatures into a delicious meal. Caribbean fish curry
is on the menu. [music playing] First, marinate with
turmeric and olive oil. So I suppose sort of
a light, fragrant curry. GORDON RAMSAY (VOICEOVER): Hit
the curry with some ginger, garlic, and pepper. Ooh, yum. GORDON RAMSAY
(VOICEOVER): Coconut milk to bring the curry to life. Fish on the grill
skin side down. [sizzling] That is glistening
beautifully. GORDON RAMSAY (VOICEOVER):
Minutes later lunch is served. Nice. Beautiful. Grace, who’d like
some lion fish? All of us. Alrighty, guys. [music playing] Literally speared,
filleted, cooked. Right to your plate. [music playing] Mm. The big shock, from
a chef’s point of view, is that something
being so poisonous that decimates the coral
reef could be so tasty. Right. No excuses now. Next time you cook that– Man, the bar is high now. –elevate it. [music playing]

  1. The dude is over reacting about lion fish I got stung when I was 13 by one my thumb got swollen and I got a massive headache

  2. King crab – Gordon: Ugly
    Lion fish – Gordon: Ugly af
    Mirrow – Gordon: beautiful but painful to watch..
    Himself – Gordon: the sexiest men in the world

  3. I was like 9 when this happened in a different country than i live in and i was swimming in this kinda shallow deep water with my family and i dive in and right in front of me is a lionfish right in front of me. I swim to the surface and back on land right away and i was fine.

  4. Too bad Ramsay didn’t meet up with the dude who made a custom Glock for hunting Lionfish, that would’ve been fun to watch.

  5. LFMAO at 1:05 that guy describes himself as a big man with muscles!!!! More like short man with a thick waist line, and shorter than the women in the video.

  6. only Gordon can do this! and is a good motivation for people to cook it so that we balance the amount of this fish in our eco-system before will be a threat for the planet

  7. People should just catch all of the overpopulated animals and give them to gordon so he can supply his resturants

  8. Thanks for getting some of those little death eaters out of there. My buddy runs a nonprofit called Lionslayers around the same area. Delicious fish, only problem is, they eat Everything that fits in their mouth/throat. Also, Unfortunately no other creatures have developed immunity or a way to eat lionfish. So its up to the people.

  9. Imagine if how much will cost of 1 bowl of food was cooked by Gordon..
    1% cooking
    1%ingredients
    98% diving and catfishing..
    I will be hungry tomorrow.

  10. HEY GORDON IN 2:99 THE LION FISH IS VENOMOUS NOT POISONOUS THERES A DIFFERENCE YOU KNOW D:

    others : so what's the difference wait don't tell we don't care!!!!

    Me : well I'm glad you asked well VENOMOUS means that it injects or has poison venom like venom glans or like the spike on the lion fish it has poison or snakes with venom glans but poisonous IS WHEN somthing or someone has poison basically everywhere like poison ivy or eucalyptus leafs and you couldn't eat lion fish if it was poisonous SO THAT IS THE DIFFERENCE HOPE YOU ENJOYED 😀

    Others : (*snores*)

    Me HeY !!!!! D:<

  11. I'm glad I haven't been seeing those "youre killing innocent animal" comments on these videos that come from people who click on videos about killing animals…. further assisting the process of killing them because the videos gets more views, person who posts it makes money off of the animal lover. Assuming its monotized

  12. "One more Gordon video and I'm done for the night."

    Three hours later

    "What's he gonna do with this lion fish? That conger eel smoothie looked great…."

  13. 99% of the problem with 'invasive species' that destroy the environment, is that not-enough is done to teach the public HOW TO PREPARE AND COOK THEM! You show them 'hey, just cut this off and the rest is tasty', and it literally turns into a 'food game' with them!
    Look at feral pigs in Georgia and Texas…so many millions of them, not enough hunters, they're having to POISON THEM because of the millions in damage they are doing! If you knew how to turn them into bacon, sausage and hams…you'd go after them too!

  14. Everything he cooks looks amazing. It's just some dishes I can't have like this one is because I'm allergic to Ginger and Tumeric, if there's any alternatives someone please let me know.

  15. I like this series of videos much better. This actually shows his passion for food. The others mostly show his passion for perfection lol. He's also connecting with the food. Which is something people need this day and age.
