By A look inside downtown Delray’s newest restaurant Lionfish
Lonfish is downtown Delray’s newest restaurant.
The West Coast sustainable seafood concept made its way to the East Coast where it will serve up Lionfish, an invasive species that happens to be tasty, and other local seafood.
The restaurant took over a former pizza place. The entire interior was revamped to reflect the coastal vibes of the Village by the Sea.
Check out the interior revamp and the seasonal menu.
And if you want to prepare a Lionfish at home here are some tips:
How to prepare and filet a Lionfish at home
*Wear protective gloves for cutting*
With sharp kitchen shears, remove venomous spines located on the spine, dorsal, pelvic, and anal fins. Be careful not to prick yourself with spines.
Using a knife (flexible boning knife) make short, sharp strokes cuts length-wise down the belly to remove the innards.
Slicing down the spine of the fish make short, consistent strokes, trying not to slice into flesh of the fish.
Bring the cut just before the head of the fish and filet along the ribs towards the tail.
Repeat for both sides.
