A must-see, must-taste, must-experience edible, historical, food extravaganza, all Florida, all the time. A product of The FOOD Museum. For the Archives, please click the file folder icon at right.

The badass Lionfish apparently is tasty, and if you eat it, you will be doing the local Florida fish a favor. This invasive Indo-Pacific species leapt from aquaria beginning in the 1980’s and has no known predators, and beastly spikes.
“Lionfish make for delicious, delicate, economical fillets that offer a perfect pop of protein. There are no catch limits, and they can be prepared dozens of ways. The Reef Environmental Education Foundation’s “Lionfish Cookbook” includes 45 recipes, from blackened fillets and nachos to “Spicy Lionfish with Dill Sauce.”
