One of the highlights of our trip to the Florida Keys was our first-ever “catch-and-cook” experience with Captain Kevin Johnsen’s Florida Keys Reel Adventures. As promised, we wanted to provide you with the opportunity to savor fresh catch of your own, and Capt’n Kevin’s Fish Taco recipe below is just the ticket.
At some seafood restaurants, the “fresh catch” might come from hundreds of miles away or arrive frozen (or even mislabeled), but at Castaway Waterfront Restaurant and Sushi Bar in Marathon, Fla., avid spear fisherman John Mirabella serves up the catch he spears during his deep-sea dives.
Among the world’s most venomous fish species, the lionfish is quickly establishing itself throughout North America’s only living coral reefs in the Florida Keys, and their impact on the reefs is inescapable.
Our culinary travel, or food tourism, brings us face-to-face with chefs, farmers, brewers and fishmongers, offering a unique opportunity to taste a new dish, learn a new technique from a chef or cultivate a more discerning palate.
