For those of you who can cook, then here is a cookbook that is dedicated just to some of the best and tastiest lionfish recipes.
This book gives you information on how to effectively catch, handle and prepare lionfish. There is nothing better than catching a lionfish and having it cooked to perfection and ready to eat only a few hours later. However, if you are not a culler it doesn’t matter. If you can buy lionfish where you live then buy the lionfish cookbook and get cooking up some of those awesome recipes. There are 45 recipes in total.
Remember if you eat locally caught lionfish then you are doing your bit to help with the war against lionfish. While many traditional native seafood species are under immense fishing pressure and need for protection, lionfish are a tasty, nutritious and environmentally conscious seafood choice. It’s the most eco-friendly choice of fish to eat!
And if you read my post on “Are lionfish safe to eat?” then you will learn that lionfish are a healthy choice of fish as they are shown to have:
- A higher concentration of heart-healthy Omega 3 fatty acids
- A lower level of saturated fats
- A lower level of heavy metals such as mercury.
So buy the lionfish cookbook today and note that if you buy a new copy, rather than a used copy, then the non-profit Reef Environmental Education Foundation (REEF) survey group receive some of the proceeds from the book’s sale. Kill lionfish, eat a tasty meal and support a non-profit environmental organisation. Everyone is a winner (except the lionfish!).
