Prior to the trip to St. Lucia, I spent countless hours scouring sources for the best places to visit. Those who know me well (or not even very well at all) would not be surprised to hear that my research centered pretty exclusively on food.
The Coal Pot appeared over and over, quickly catapulting it to the top of the list.
As we sat down to our corner table with the water nearly reaching our toes, we immediately knew we had made a great selection.
The menu was presented by the waitress on a large chalk board and read as you would hope it to. A selection of beautiful starters followed by a list of fresh fish topped with a sauce of your choice and served with rice and steamed local vegetables. A true reflection of St. Lucian cuisine.
We ordered red snapper. Perfectly flaky with a rich, well-seasoned sauce of coconut curry. A light buttery white rice sits next to the fish and is perfect for scooping up the last drags of sauce.
