Casón - what type of fish is it?


Recommended Posts

Cazón: dogfish, sometimes called "baby shark." A firm-fleshed white fish, cazon is sometimes used to substitute for more expensive fish, such as huachinango — red snapper — in a wide range of dishes. Perhaps the most famous regional specialty made with cazon is Campeche's pan de cazón, tortillas with shredded fish and black beans.

This clip from Yahoo has me ready to try some.

Yes, dogfish can be eaten. It's widely eaten in the UK as part of Fish & Chips, usually sold under the name Huss or Rock Salmon (Spiny dogfish). It can be used as any other fish. It's not as firm as some sharks or swordfish, but it's not mushy like Basa.
