Caribbean cuisine is nothing short of a pure and unbridled treat for the taste buds. Although we could sit here for hours and list the incredible food awaiting you, here are just a few of our very favourite Antiguan fish and seafood dishes that we’re sure you’ll fall in love with on your Caribbean getaway.

Sailing the Caribbean - Warm waters and wonderful seafood

Antiguan Fish Broth

This light and flavourful broth is the most wonderful way to begin any Antiguan banquet. Made with fresh ingredients including Mahi Mahi or Grouper fish, onion, peppers, thyme, scallions and garlic, the broth is cooked gently using no butter or oil, resulting in a delicate dish which celebrates the beautiful texture and pure flavour of Caribbean seafood.

Enjoy an Antiguan Breakfast during your Yacht Getaway

The star of an Antiguan breakfast is salted fish and you’ll quickly see why this is a dish you’ll see adorning menus everywhere. Typically made with ling fish, a member of the cod family, salt-cured white fish is flaked into meaty pieces and sautéed with peppers and onions. Often accompanied by plantain, avocado, spinach, a hard-boiled egg, and a side salad, tucking into an Antiguan breakfast is easily one of the best possible ways to start the day.

Deep Fried Conch

The slightly chewy meat of these Caribbean sea snails is somewhat akin to clams, and can be found served in a variety of ways. One of our favourite ways to eat conch is battered and deep fried, served with coleslaw, rice and peas, and a side of macaroni and cheese.

Pan-Fried Snapper with Creole Sauce

If you’re looking for a hearty meal that’ll keep you fuelled for hours, look no further than a plate of freshly pan-fried fish doused in delicious creole sauce. Fresh seafood flavours pair perfectly with sautéed red peppers and onions and are often accompanied with rice and beans, coleslaw, peas, potato salad, and a side salad. The perfect balance of spicy and fresh, you’ll find yourself tempted to order this incredible dish again and again during your yacht getaway.
