Lionfish Vera Cruz

This is one of three lionfish recipes we tested before our 2018 Bahamas cruise. We don’t normally eat fish, but lionfish are SO easy to find in the Bahamas that we thought we should see if we could stomach it.

This was our favorite recipe by far. As people who don’t like that “fishy” taste, we thought this was delicious. The tomatoes, onions, and capers brightened up the fish. See all three lionfish recipes we tried.

Butter Lemon Lionfish

This is one of three lionfish recipes we tested before our 2018 Bahamas cruise. We don’t normally eat fish, but lionfish are SO easy to find in the Bahamas that we thought we should see if we could stomach it.

This tasted a lot like any other butter lemon recipe for white fish. It was flaky and mild. We would eat it again, but we like the other two recipes better. See all three lionfish recipes we tried.

Lionfish Ceviche

This is one of three lionfish recipes we tested before our 2018 Bahamas cruise. We don’t normally eat fish, but lionfish are SO easy to find in the Bahamas that we thought we should see if we could stomach it.

We didn’t let the ceviche “cook” quite long enough on this one, but it was good enough that we thought we would want to eat it in the future, so we’re adding it to our “keepers” list. There are likely many combinations involving mangos, pineapples and other fruit. See all three lionfish recipes we tried.

3 Lionfish Recipes We Tried at Home

We experimented with lionfish recipes tonight. Here’s what we came up with:

None of these were very challenging recipes, although they required a few ingredients we had to buy special, such as canned mangos and capers. The Lemon Butter Lionfish was nothing special, but the others are definitely going on our “keepers” list!
