Sopa de Pejelagarto
At the June 2015, Traditional Cooks Event at the Parque Bicentenario in Guanajuato, we had the chance to try sopa de pejelagarto, lizardfish soup, a pre-hispanic dish typical in the State of Tabasco. The dish is well known in Mexico but rarely served outside of Tabasco. This was our first chance to try it and it was spectacular.
What on Earth is a Pejelagarto?
A Pejelagarto is a freshwater fish from the Gar family which resembles a pre-historic creature. Once you get past the looks of the fish, the soup is delicious. We were offered the head but we declined. We were feeling adventurous but not that adventurous.
