Lionfish is a readily available fish throughout the southeastern coastal US, the Gulf and the Caribbean. Due to its status as an invasive species, it is also an excellent option for eating. It is versatile, delicious, healthy and a great way to promote responsible fishing and seafood practices. One of my favorite ways to prepare lionfish is in a ceviche, so here is my signature recipe for a Killer Lionfish Ceviche!

Since my homecoming to the Caribbean, I’ve found myself experiencing an inner conflict whenever I see a lionfish. On one hand, I feel a responsibility as an able conservation partner to help control an invasive species that is so destructive; on the other hand I feel for the lionfish. The malice is gone and all that is left is grief knowing such a stunning example of nature is in such a terrible position thanks to the ignorance of humans.
