Stop the predatory, snakehead fish -- with a fork!

There was a great article recently on MSN News reporting that chefs are putting snakehead fish in its place...on the menu. The snakehead is a non-native invasive fish whose numbers are increasing in waterways in the Potomac River basin in Virginia and Maryland. It is voracious and eats almost anything in its path. Restaurants are now returning the favor by serving up this fish that has a dense white mild flavored flesh to their patrons. Be sure to try this tasty dish next time you are in the area.
