Ta‘ape (Bluestripe Snapper) Recipes
Cook or share these four delicious ta‘ape recipes by Hawai‘i chefs.
Four recipes by Hawai‘i chefs Mark “Gooch” Noguchi and Kristene “Banchan” Moon that feature the invasive ta‘ape (bluestripe snapper).
Invasive species are a major threat to our native species and habitats. One way to combat this threat is to come together as a community and eat more of them! Ta‘ape is an invasive fish that is bountiful across Hawai‘i reefs. NOAA Fisheries’ partner Conservation International - Hawai‘i, with support from the Saltonstall-Kennedy Grant Program, is working with local chefs and Chef Hui to get more ta‘ape on our tables to support access to sustainable seafood while helping our local marine ecosystems. Join the movement to #EatMoreTaape by enjoying these four recipes created by Hawai‘i chefs Mark “Gooch” Noguchi and Kristene “Banchan” Moon.
