Senegalese cuisine is West African food influenced by North African, French and Portuguese cuisines. While fish is prominent in Senegalese cooking, Goree also offers lamb, chicken and an abundance of vegetables.
Senegalese cuisine is similar to that of other Western African cultures. Fish, lamb and beef are incorporated into most dishes, often stewed or combined with fresh juices. Consider the historical background of Senegal (Woolof, Islam, and French) and the flavors become apparent.
