Lionfish

Yeah, when I see them while snorkeling, I won't pat them! But dang, they're delicious.

I really hope Whole Paycheck puts them in their stores nation-wide, not just FL.

They are invading the Caribbean and pose a potential hazard to an ecosystem that has no natural defense against them. It is fairly certain that the invasion results from a combination of Floridians releasing them from home aquariums, and possibly from accidental release as a result of hurricane flooding.

The infestation began along the Florida coast and moved out from there. We saw them in the Bahamas and in Jamaica. They have organized hunts for them in the Bahamas, and Dawg is right, they are an amazing delicacy to eat.

They're a problem in Aruba as well. There is a campaign to get more restaurants to offer then on their menus.

Cozumel also has an annual lionfish tournament, and off the top of my head, at least 5 local restaurants there feature it on their menu. I've had it coconut-crusted (my fave), garlic buttered, with marinara (we now get that on the side, do not smother a beautiful fillet with sauce), and just browned butter. Lionfish ceviche is also delicious, so clean and fresh tasting.

You're making me want to try it, Dawg I should ask my fishmonger if he can get it.

Oh, GG, you will not be sorry, it's that good. You are much closer to the source than we are here along the river, so the possibility of finding it might be better than what we have.

He gets fresh scallops trucked in every day from up north somewhere, so it's possible to get stuff from down south, too, I suppose.

fish, recipe

Lionfish We were in Whole Paycheck today looking for some hard to find things. They had whole lionfish for $8.99 a pound. We didn't get any but for those of you that like them, might want to check and see if your local WF has them. Really surprised they still had their full spine complement. 3 stars 1 reviews
