Lionfish Tropical Garum

Garum is a seasoning that was used to replace salt in the kitchens of ancient Greece, Rome & Carthage. In the Westworld, it fell into disuse for many years, while in Asia, its use remained throughout the southeast and it plays an important role in the kitchens of Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia. 

In Oriundo we decided to create our own Tropical Garum in collaboration with the ConservacionConciencia Foundation using small samples of Lionfish that don't have commercial output. This way, we contribute in controlling the population of this invasive breed, we protect coral reefs and other types of marine life, and in times that fishing other species such as the snapper is prohibited, it provides another alternative to fishermen.
