Fried Bake & Lionfish Recipe by Chef Shaun 🇹🇹

Fried Bake is a type of bread that is fried until golden brown, creating a crispy exterior while maintaining a soft and fluffy interior. Fried Bake is often enjoyed as a breakfast item or as a side dish with various savory or sweet accompaniments.

Lionfish are an invasive species that are currently inflicting longstanding damage to our eco-system by eating many of our local fish. They are able to do this because they have very few natural predators, likely due to their venomous spines. One simple, but very effective way to help deal with this problem is to eat them.
