Does Ecuador Have Good Seafood?


Ecuador is bordered by the Pacific Ocean, ensuring a steady supply of fresh seafood. Ceviche is an especially popular dish in Ecuador. This usually includes white fish and shrimp that are marinated in citrus juice.

Encocadas is a dish of white fish cooked in coconut milk, and bollas de pescado is a filet of fish steamed with peanuts inside a banana leaf. Seafood curries and chowder are also widely available along the coast. Camarones al ajillo, shrimp with garlic sauce, is tasty and avilable throughout much of Ecuador.
