We see great menus on Caribbean yacht charter boats. We are not sure this next recipe hits with yacht charter chefs, however.
Florida marine conservationists have a simple “recipe.” They say, EAT the lionfish!
With few natural predators, Lionfish rapidly spread throughout the Caribbean and Atlantic. They voraciously prey on many things. For instance, local fish, shrimp, and crab populations across the region and in Florida are targets. Lionfish are a huge risk to the world-famous coral reefs of the south.
Bahamas yacht charter clients constantly see these venomous creatures.
The Key Largo-based REEF conservation organization released “The Lionfish Cookbook.” It is a collection of 45 recipes to combat the red lionfish.
There are no government funds available to provide bounties or removal programs. Conservationists hope to therefore create a commercial demand for the fish.
“It’s absolutely good eating — a delicacy. It’s delicately-flavored white meat, very buttery,” boasts Lad Akins. In fact, he directs special projects for the Reef Environmental Education Foundation. Akins authored the cookbook. He co-authored with professional chef, Tricia Ferguson.
Hurricane Andrew in 1992 – and as a result, an aquarium. Researchers believe that Hurricane Andrew caused red Lionfish to invade Florida waters. Specifically, an aquarium broke. At least six lionfish spilled into Miami’s Biscayne Bay. With no known predators, they freely breed and decimate sea creatures and corals. It seems like such a small thing to happen. It just goes to show you that 6 fish can destroy the ecology. Please be mindful of releasing exotic species.
The cookbook shares useful tips on collecting, handling, and preparing lionfish. Furthermore, it provides expert background on its ecological impact.
