Salt cod is an Anguillian staple food

Seafood is abundant, and includes prawns, shrimp, crab, spiny lobster, conch, mahi-mahi, red snapper, marlin and grouper.[1] Salt cod is a staple food eaten by itself and used in stews, casseroles and soups.[1]


Livestock is limited due to the small size of the island, and people there utilize poultry, pork, goat and mutton, along with imported beef.[1] Goat is the most commonly eaten meat, and is utilized in a variety of dishes.[1] A significant amount of the island's produce is imported due to limited land suitable for agriculture production; much of the soil is sandy and infertile.[1]

Fruits, vegetables and starches

Among the agriculture produced in Anguilla includes tomatoes, peppers, limes and other citrus fruits, onion, garlic, squash, pigeon peas and callalloo, a leaf green native to Africa.[1] Starch staple foods include imported rice and other foods that are locally-grown or imported, including yams,[2] sweet potatoes[2] and breadfruit.[1] Potatoes are also consumed, although less frequently than other starches.[1] Flour and cornmeal are also starches used in Anguillian cuisine.[1]
