Food in the Bahamas
Well after being in the Bahamas for 8 days, I kind of like the diet of Spiny Lobster, Conch, Stone Crab and Grouper, throw in a little chicken and the best tasting arugula i have ever had! We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and ate local or cooked every day. After a couple days we figured out the fishing schedule and the boat ramp in Tarpen Bay, conch and small fish around noon and Spiny lobster and bigger fish late afternoon. The spiny lobster were amazing, we always seemed to miss the conch. I did go snorkeling nearly every day, looking for that elusive conch, we found them several days but the shell was not mature, yea i know, you are saying how can you tell, well you have to look for a thin flair on the last ring then they are old enough to harvest. We ate many styles of Conch fritters, Lobster Salad, Grouper Fingers, Conch Chowder, Conch Ceviche, Lobster Paella. We had some great burgers from an Ex-Pat in Gregory Town. So check out the pics!
