Recipe Post: Snakehead Fish Soup

Hi!!! It’s been WAYYY too long since I’ve done a recipe post.  Well, that ends today! The next few posts will all feature delicious recipes.

Well, let’s get started !

Snakehead Fish Soup

Snakehead fish is a predatory freshwater fish native to Africa and Asia.

At 50 million years old, it’s one of the oldest species and as expected, looks quite foreign

Unfortunately, snakehead fish has the unsavoury reputation of “fishzilla” and is actually ILLEGAL to possess live in many US states due to its invasive nature. However, Asians have a different view. Traditional medicine believes that snakehead fish, especially in soup, has healing properties. Guess what, the claims aren’t unfounded!

Even if the claims are overblown, snakehead fish is an extremely nutritious source of lean protein and Omega -3s.
