On Tuesday, it was announced that the Taste of Chicago would be serving Asian carp "sliders"--for free. That got us at RedEye wondering: would we eat it? And, therefore, this edition of food fight was born. So, without further ado ...
Would you eat Asian carp?
Would Asian carp be my first choice on a restaurant menu? Probably not. But if it's free and dished up by expert seafood chefs from Dirk's Fish, and I'm a little bit hungry and happen to find myself at the Taste of Chicago—you bet I'll eat that. I'd be more grossed out downing half the other items at the Taste. Do you really think an Asian carp slider seasoned with oregano, garlic and lemon zest would taste worse than mac 'n' cheese bites, fried ravioli and beef on a stick in 90-degree heat?--Dana Kavan, @chicagodana
