A CHEF ON A MISSION
A TOP CHEF WANTS YOU TO HELP CLEAN UP OUR WATERWAYS BY EATING DELICIOUSLY
With bow and arrow in hand, Top Chef alum Jennifer Carroll sets sail on the Potomac River in the dead of night, in search of the invasive - but delicious - snakehead fish.
Then she’s back out to reel in Blue Catfish - yet another invasive fish that’s troubling yet tasty. It's all part of Chef Jenn's mission to eat the invasive species that are overtaking local waters.
In the kitchen the Chef offers some easy tips on purchasing and cooking quality seafood of all sorts. With simple and versatile recipes, she shows us how to make her decadent Seared Snakehead with Moroccan Couscous and Grilled Vegetables and a Blue Catfish Rillette.
"WE NEED TO EAT THESE FISH. THEY ARE DELICIOUS!
EVERYONE NEEDS TO DO THEIR PART BY EATING THE INVASIVE SPECIES."
