 Top 15 Recipes From Bermuda

Bermudian cuisine is the cuisine of the British Overseas Territory of Bermuda. The cuisine of the islands reflects a rich and diverse history and heritage blending British and Portuguese cuisine with preparations of local seafood species, particularly wahoo and rockfish.

Traditional dishes include codfish and potatoes served either with an add on of hard-boiled egg and butter or olive oil sauce with a banana or in the Portuguese style with tomato-onion sauce, peas, and rice.

Hoppin’ John, pawpaw casserole, and fish chowder are also specialties of Bermuda. As most ingredients used in Bermuda’s cuisine are imported, local dishes are offered with a global blend, with fish as the major ingredient, in any food eaten at any time.

 Main Dishes 

There are several dishes served on Bermuda that are unique to the island which offers a taste of traditional Bermudian culture. Fish is one of the main ingredients in Bermudian cuisine. Local fish includes mahi-mahi, snapper, spiny lobster (during September–March), tuna, and wahoo.

These are used in dishes such as fish and chips, pan-fried fish, and boiled salted codfish and potato, a traditional dish in Bermuda (usually served on Sundays with tomato sauce and olive oil).

Fish chowder is considered a national dish, which is a staple food not only in restaurants and hotels but also in homes; the main ingredients are fish stock, fish, vegetables and bacon fat and served with spices, but a Bermudan specialty is to serve it with black rum and sherry peppers.

Beef stock is an essential ingredient in Bermudian fish chowder. Sherry pepper is prepared with ripe and very hot bird peppers using sherry for marinating it, and supplemented with herbs and spices; and black rum is rum derived by blackening with molasses in a special barrel for aging.

 Pickled Onion Brunch 

The specialty in some restaurants during the weekend is a codfish brunch. It is a large serving of full-blown codfish, boiled and steamed with salt, and with boiled potatoes, onions, and sliced bananas. The topping is with hard-boiled egg or tomato sauce, and, also occasionally with avocado slices.

Appetizers served are a shark hash and Codfish cakes. Shark hash is minced shark meat, sautéed with spices, and served on toast. Codfish cake is made out of salted cod mash (smashed) and with cooked potatoes and fresh thyme and parsley. Then, it is formed into a patty and fried in a pan.

It is also served with a topping of a “zesty fruit salsa and a side of mesclun salad” sandwiched in a white bun with mayonnaise. (1)
