Given the location of Seychelles in the heart of the Indian Ocean, fish, seafood and shellfish feature prominently in their main meals. Supplementing these dishes are rice and curry, as well as other lentils, fruits and vegetables. True to its heritage, some of the speciality dishes have been influenced by its past and includes Bourgeoisie Grille, Cassava Pudding, Coconut curries, Fruit Bat and Satini Rekin.

In the preparation of these meals, numerous spices are used and some of the more frequently used species include lemongrass, tamarind and ginger.
