Fish curries are a staple diet of Creole cuisine. No matter where you go on the island, you’ll never be too far from a fresh daily catch being aromatically prepared with a little bit of France, India, and China in it. A regular in households, restaurants, and food stands alike, fish curries are THE thing in Seychelles, and can be prepared using a variety of ingredients, with certain elements like coconut milk, spices, and a local curry paste being constant. This delicious dish is best savoured with rice, bread, chutney, and salad! Looking for a best time to visit Seychelles? Click here!
I’ve been experimenting with a few curries from Mauritius and the Seychelles on this cold, wet Saturday. This is a yellow turmeric fish curry using spices from TonKen’s Seychelles Creole Spices and Condiments from @eumundimarkets and curry leaves and chilli from the garden, with lots of warm homemade roti ????

When it comes to grilled fish, no one quite does it as the Seychellois do! And if you’re going to savour grilled fish while you’re in Seychelles, you’ve got to dig into a red-snapper, which is clearly the king of grilled fish. Tourists and locals alike enjoy savouring every single bite of this delicacy, cooked with ginger, garlic, chillies and a hint of lemon juice. Rabbit fish, jackfish, sailfish, and jobfish are a few other neat choices for a delectable grilled fish experience in Seychelles. If you're a foodie, then you must try the halal-food of Bangkok.
Yet another delicacy locally savoured with a lot of heart, dried fish had made it through traditions and times when refrigerators did not exist. The fish is salted and dried for many days so that it can be preserved and has a long shelf life. The most popular way of consuming dried fish is in the form of fish curry, or a ‘rougaille’, in which the dried fish is washed, crumbled and cooked with tomatoes, garlic, chillies, and onions.#sundaylunch #fishrougaille #rougay some #seychellesfood #saltedfish #saltedfishrougaille prepared with plenty of fresh #tomatoes #capers #peppers #paprika #herbs served with #whiterice and #mangochutney #santini #instafood #islandfood #foodie #fishporn #comfortfood A post shared by Brigitte Morel Sabino (@brisab88) on

A dish that is typically Seychellois, perhaps the only way you would be comfortable in getting close to a shark in Seychelles, is if it’s in the form of a chutney! Shark chutney is a flavoursome local delight comprising of boiled shark that is finely mashed and cooked with spices, lime juice, pepper, and onions. The chutney is typically served with rice and lentils, and yes, if you’ve never eaten it before, expect it to be to very salty and fishy!View this post on Instagram
