Pez Loro, aka. Lora, aka. Cotorra.
It's Parrot Fish. Loro/Lora and Cotorra are Spanish words for Parrot. The fish probably got it's name because of his green-yellow-blue colors and it's mouth, which resembles one of a bird.
Excellent fish to eat, considered safe from ciguatera all year 'round and never had one tasting like Mero and Tilapia at times does around here.
Actually a cheap fish too!
Ciguatera is common in the whole Caribbean region.
Dominicans consider Parrot fish a safe fish to eat. However, information on the Internet suggest otherwise.
The old golden rule suggesting you ought not to eat fish and especially sea food on months without an "R", is also well known here, even though, oyster peddlers on the beach will go to great lengths to try to explain tourists that their seafood out of too warm waters are "safe".
Well, the one on the picture up there looks VERY blueish... maybe that varies from region to region.
Here at least, the go from grayish-green over blueish and can have a yellow band on the side. The really constant thing is the mouth.
When they're fried, they're fried... the color is all gone. But still taste great, light flaky white meat.
Sorry if I was unclear... I realize that when they are fried they won't be blue... but i remembered my fish being orange-ish before they cook it. No sure... I guess I'll have to go to Boca Chica this weekend to confirm. Thanks.
