Want to try something new this Valentine’s Day? Why not skip the crowded restaurants, pricey menus, and heart-shaped displays this year and do something different: cook up a romantic Bahamian-inspired dinner for two at home!
Simple to prepare and full of flavor, Bahamian cuisine has just the right amount of spice to add a little kick to your Valentine’s Day celebrations, and cooking a meal together can be a fun date night activity. Crank up the heat, cue up a Caribbean playlist, and get cooking.
Starter: Coconut Conch Chowder (serves 8)
In addition to being one of the most popular types of seafood you’ll find in The Bahamas, conch is also considered an aphrodisiac, so it’s the perfect choice to start off your Valentine’s Day dinner! For a similar taste, you can also substitute lobster, clams, or mussels in this recipe.
