If You Can't Beat Em, Eat Em!

We don't usually offer recipes here, but - here we go.

Asian Carp Cooked 3 Ways
We sat down with
North American Caviar, Inc.
to talk about the invasive species called Asian Carp. This fish is known to multiply extremely fast and can wipe out game fish populations. This causes problems both economically and environmentally.
What most people don't know is that Asian Carp is actually delicious to eat! Most people hear the word carp and assume it isn't any good but it is quite the opposite. We came up with 3 delicious recipes that anyone can cook at home!
