Lionfish are a delicious, yet invasive species in the Carribean and Bahamas.
The lionfish’s voracious appetite and lack of natural predators both contribute to the destructive effect they are having on the ocean environments they now inhabit.
A clean, white meat fish, the lionfish’s delicate flavor makes it an easy replacement for any more familiar species of mild white fish in a dish. This offers chefs a sustainable alternative to overfished populations such as snapper or grouper.
As they say in this informative video, one of the most effective and delicious ways to control the lionfish population is to eat more lionfish! And we agree!
