If you’re in Mauritius, you can get local fish such as Vacoas, Capitaine, Korn and Vieil. Most Creole restaurants have the Kari Pwasson (Fish curry) on their menu cards. Fish is served in vindaye (vindaloo) which is a spicy turmeric sauce with mustard seeds, in rougaille, a hot salsa with herbs and chives. Salted fish (pwasson sale) is another local favourite.
