St. Lucia cuisine – the foodie shots

As I ended my visit to the island of St. Lucia – I realized I had focused so much on the beautiful surroundings – the adventures, the lush vegetation and the fascinating people – but hadn’t given much thought to the cuisine.

I had indulged in the fresh fish, shellfish, locally-grown vegetables and fruit – and discovered a new hot sauce too. I got to taste locally-grown cocoa, as well as locally-made chocolate – and ate well at every meal.

The first series of photos are thanks to meals at Anse Chastenet and Jade Mountain resorts – housemade chocolate from Jade Mountain as well as scallop salad, grilled grouper with corn salad and spicy battered shrimp:

And from my stay at Windjammer Landing – more tasty treats – ceviche, grilled Indian-spiced fish and surf & turf:

And yes, that last picture is steak and shrimp. After four days of fish and shellfish, a little meat was a welcome pairing with my spicy St. Lucian shrimp and grilled asparagus.
