Barbados is known as the land of the Flying Fish. These foot-long fish, which “fly” over the water for up to 200ft, are found in other waters but Bajans have refined the skill of de-boning them. Caught mainly during the winter and spring months Flying Fish is a tasty, slightly oily fish that is delicious shallow fried in soft breadcrumbs with just the right amount of Bajan seasoning.
The national dish of Barbados is Flying Fish and Cou Cou. The fish is steamed and smothered in a tasty gravy made from butter, tomatoes, fresh herbs, onion and a little lime juice, then served over a mound of Cou Cou which is corn meal, okras, water and butter cooked to a firm consistency.
