The typical meal of locals in the Bahamas is rice mixed with crab or peas or both, fish, and potato salad or macaroni and cheese. Seafood is the key attraction when it comes to eating in the Bahamas. A wide range of fish and sea life is caught fresh from the neighbouring sea on a daily basis, and included into most meals. Conch, crawfish, red snapper, grouper, and yellow tail are some of the most popular tourist choices, and offer the base for some of the islands' top dishes. With seafood available in such profusion, many methods of preparation are used to add multiplicity and mix things up. Steamed, baked, fried, stewed, heavily seasoned, hardly seasoned at all - you name it, and it is available in the Bahamas.
