We all know that Barbados is a Caribbean paradise, but did you know that it also serves up some of the most standout dishes in the region?

The island has been nicknamed “The Land of Flying Fish” because its waters are the perfect habitat for these unique creatures. Naturally, the fish are part of the national dish: cou-cou and flying fish, which, along with the fish, includes a mix of cornmeal and okra, seasoned with salt, pepper, and hot pepper sauce.

Nearby oceans and rivers are also populated with dolphin, salt fish, red snapper, kingfish, tuna, bill fish, barracuda, shark, salmon, shrimp, lobster, crab, and mackerel, so if you like seafood, you know where to go.
