Often compared to crab, triggerfish meat is firm and sweet. The fillets come skinless and can be grilled, pan sautéed, baked, or broiled.
The skin is very tough and not favored by us humans, but dogs love it. We sell triggerfish hides as dog treats at the Raleigh State Farmers Market. The treats are best consumed outside where Fido can spread scales across the ground without consequence.
