2. Grilled Prawns on Skewers
Grilled prawns are a Goan staple. And not only do they taste amazing, but they’re also very nutritious. Although the name ‘prawn’ is quite vague, you get different types of prawns in Goa. You’d want to go for the big ones that are used to BBQ. Although these can be a little expensive, they’re super worth it for a live BBQ yacht experience.
1. Goan Pork Roast
We Goans take a lot of pride and care on our pork preparations. In fact, there’s so many you’d be spoilt for choice. Pork roast is a Goan BBQ classic and is known as Assado de Porco in Portuguese. The dish is traditionally slow-cooked over a food fire stove but an open-air BBQ gets the job done just fine. Be sure to bring along some Goan Poee for the authentic Goan BBQ experience.
