Green Fig and Lionfish
Sustainable Caribbean Cooking
A practical guide for cooking seafood: Bringing together the allure of the Caribbean Sea and Caribbean island life, this cookbook offers recipes for cooking with seasonal and unusual ingredients. While most of the recipes call for lionfish, the dishes are simple and flexible so any kind of seafood can easily be swapped in.
Eat fresh, local cuisine: Cooking seasonally and locally takes advantage of the best-tasting ingredients at peak ripeness. Chef Allen Susser, dubbed the “Ponce de León of New Florida Cooking” by the New York Times, expertly and effectively teaches us how to blend the spices of the Caribbean into our cooking while using easy-to-understand techniques.
Enjoy a meal that benefits the environment: The overbearing lionfish population has been threatening the balance of marine life and damaging coral reefs. By incorporating these delicious and nutritious fish into recipes, we can help ease the pressure on surrounding native fish and their fragile ecosystems.
