Bake & Shark

Bake & Shark, or Shark & Bake as it's also called, is a sandwich made of lightly battered and seasoned young shark, wrapped in a light, unleavened fried-bread or bake.

 

It's a must-have, cultural food staple for any visit to Maracas.

If you know any Caribbean nationals, ask them about Bake & Shark - they'll likely smile and tell you of Trinidad.

 

My portion was left "alarmingly plain", according to Avi.

She chose do the typical Trini thing and pile a wide assortment of condiments atop her sandwich; things like tamarind, cilantro, garlic and Congo pepper sauces, and more standard items like lettuce, tomato and cucumber.
