RECIPE: Lionfish Tacos

The brightness of the crisp Red Cabbage Slaw really gives legs to the delicate flavour of the Lionfish in this delicious presentation. Tropical tastes of lime and cilantro combine to produce a dish worthy of your lunch table.

Lionfish fillets are small and tender, and can be prepared like any flaky white fish. Use them in your favourite recipes, or try a few of ours. Tropic Seafood buys and sells lionfish fillet, and many local restaurants are warming up to the idea of serving lionfish. The more customers request it, the more encouraged local businesses are to order and serve lionfish. And every lionfish on a plate is one less to destroy local sealife.

The mighty Lionfish. The size of a grunt with the heart and appetite of a lion.

Lionfish are caught in Bahamian and Caribbean waters at an ever-increasing rate. This beautiful predator is not native to this region but has proven to be an adaptable creature that is determined to survive. It can live in waters of differing temperatures, salinity and depths, and will eat practically any sealife that can fit in its mouth. Local conservationists and scientists are urgently trying to get Bahamians and visitors to appreciate how important it is to reduce Lionfish numbers, in order to protect native species. Lobster, snapper, grouper, conch and any other baby fish are eaten in huge numbers by lionfish, who also breed at least once per week.
