I'm way off the mark. I thought pigs in a blanket were cabbage rolls, also known as golumpki to Polish people. I had no idea you guys were talking about that kind of food.

Sure, I'm open for a recipe, GG. I've got a pasta pot with a steamer basket. Not sure I'll find corn husks this time of year though.

One of my kids made PIB today. It's a favorite of SO's and SIL. I can eat them by the handful.

The corn husks you are looking for are dried and you can find them in the Mexican Food aisle in the grocery.

We went to a fave restaurant and had lionfish 2 ways: one coconut encrusted, the other sauteed in butter and garlic. Outstanding!

I didn't realize the lionfish was an offering on a menu. Interesting.
How big are they when harvested for cooking?

They're offered in Mexico and on certain Caribbean islands, maybe Florida too, Pac. It's an effort to get this vicious non-native predator off the delicate reef systems. You can eat them at any size, our filets were 6 to 8 inches, and absolutely delicious. They have to be prepared in a way to get rid of the poisonous spines.

I get cornhusks for tamales at Walmart when I'm in N. Minnesota. I can't find them here, but N. Minnesota is so well known for its Mexican cuisine...NOT.
