Thursday, August 23: Save our Waters: Eat Lionfish!

Living here on the gulf coast, it’s hard not to have heard about the invasive Lionfish who are wrecking havoc on our ecosystem as they are difficult to catch and clean. There has been a big movement for eradication with many restaurants joining in – including all of us at Great Southern. The good news is Lionfish taste fantastic! We will welcome representatives from the Lionfish Awareness Coalition and American Marine Research to give a bit of history on the species and share efforts that are being made in the eradication. Chef Billy Ballou will show each of the class participants how to clean, filet and prepare with a hands-on demonstration. All then will enjoy different lionfish preparations served alongside some Southern sides and paired with three different beverage selections. Each participant will take home a tips for Lionfish.
