St. Barths Food
In the West Indies, the traditional aperitif is a ti’punch, a mix of white rum, cane sugar, and lime, accompanied by accras, little deep-fried fritters made with codfish and flour, served with a spicy sauce. They are often offered on the list of appetizers at local restaurants and make a great snack while waiting for your meal to be served. Another delicious traditional option is the « Creole platter », featuring stuffed crab, West Indian sausage, and cristophine with codfish. Caribbean lobsters are also a popular choice found on the menu in many local restaurants. In addition to the classic recipe of simply grilled lobster, many chefs add them to baked casseroles or salads. Be sure to try a local lobster, you will not be disappointed!
