Bar jacks are another of the overlooked food fish that are native to Key West. They are Caribbean fish and don’t range much out of South Florida and the Keys. This is as local as it gets!
They are very firm white meat which can be cooked any way you like. They are great broiled, baked and fried. We love ’em broiled with a Parmesan crusted topping.

They can also be seared Sashimi style. They are also good for making ceviche- if you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out!
Have a smoker? Smoked bar jack is mouth-watering delicious. If there’s any left over after you “sample” your first batch, try making your own smoked fish dip. Throw a bit of fresh chopped spinach in the dip and it’s heaven on earth.
