Enjoy some of the most authentic flavours in the exquisite gastronomy of Fuerteventura, where tradition and modernity combine to create mouth-watering dishes. The surprising island cuisine is known for simple recipes using fresh, quality ingredients from both the garden and the ocean: fish like vieja (parrot fish), and cherne (sea perch); seafood like lapas (limpets), burgados (sea snails) and camarones (shrimp); rabbit meat, which is especially tasty when prepared with salmorejo (salmi), the popular carne fiesta and lamb and goat’s kid stews are just a few examples. Excellent cheeses, a tasty variety of honeys and traditional pastries are just a few of the surprises, along with wonderful wines born from the volcanic earth and a centuries-long tradition.
