Jamaican Fish Recipes
Jamaican Fish Recipes by Kemoy McCurbyn
Jamaicans love fish! The snapper, jack fish, parrot fish and butter fish are probably right there at the top in terms of favourites!
And we have a new addition! The Lion Fish. The lion fish migrated to our Jamaican waters and was first portrayed to be unfit for eating as they are said to be poisonous.
But after research, the lion fish was deemed very fit for eating - and has actually jumped right to the top of the list of Jamaica’s preferred fish!
And like chicken, we prepare fish in a number of different and exciting ways here in Jamaica. It is fried, curried, baked, steamed, jerked, curried, brown stewed, used in soups, and even escoveitched - which is still the most popular way that we prepare it.
In this article, I will share with you some our favorite Jamaican fish recipes. Simply click on the links to them.
And by the way, these are real Jamaican, home style, easy to do, preparations that will have you devouring your fish in no time!
