Cuisine of Lanzarote

As you may imagine seafood is a staple of the local diet. Local dishes are incredibly popular with tourists like various fish baked in salt and Sancocho Canario which is a dried fish and vegetable stew, usually served with rice or pita bread.

There are also various kinds of traditional breads that are served with local cheeses and summertime salads, with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Surprising as it may sound it is rare to find Paella on any restaurant or hotel menu in Lanzarote despite it being a Spanish owned island. Prices in most places are reasonable and a three or even four or five course meal can be eaten at a fraction of the price found in the U.K. and U.S.
