Share post:

Cou Cou and flying fish, Barbados’ national dish, is still holding its own among the gastronomical giants of the world, according to the National Geographic book Food Journeys of a Lifetime.
Flying fish and cou cou landed third place down from hamburgers from the United States at No. 1 and ackee and salt fish from Jamaica.
Cou cou was described “as a polenta-like cornmeal and okra porridge. Cou cou pairs perfectly with flying fish – once abundant but now overfished and scarce – which is either steamed with lime juice, spices and vegetables or fired and served with a spicy sauce”. (JS)
