Tapado (Sea Food Soup)

Tapado Soup

From Rio Dulce we hired a boat to take us down the river and into the Carribbean town of Livingston where the pace of living slows to a crawl. I spent most of my time cultivating my love for food. Pictured is a Garifuna dish that combines fish, shrimp, crab, banana and coconut milk. mmmmm... tapado...

Man that dish looks good. It would be even better if they would have, you know, actually knocked the fins off the fish before they cooked it up.

That actually doesn't look half bad... And since I haven't eaten all day, sure could go for a bowl right about now.

That actually looks like the most disgusting dish of food I have ever seen. It looks like the chef ran down to the ocean with a bowl and scooped stuff up and served it to you guys. I'm glad that I will be enjoying a wonderful Turkey dinner compliments of my mother for Christmas dinner...and not an "organic" bowl of seafood. Take care, I miss you B!

For the record the dish cost us 50 Quetzales... roughly $7 CDN according to my math. About twice the cost of a nights accomodation.

Every once in a while you have to splash out. I would respect myself in the morning if I'd left Livingstone without trying their most famous dish.

If you like seafood, you love Tapado
