Chicken, pork, fish and all seafood either spiced with curry, casseroled or combined with fruits for a sweet taste, instead of the usual salty. Some of the famous pork dishes are: soya pork, pork curry with taro (or also lamb or mutton with coconut milk), or pork curry with banana. Chicken is prepared as coconut chicken with fafa (green leaves, similar to spinach), chicken curry with fae (bananas) and sweet potatoes, papaya chicken, poulet avec les limettes (chicken breast, lime and peanut oil). The fish is eaten marinate or as braised swordfish with sweet potatoes (including garlic and carrots). A well known recipe is the Tahitian skillet shrimp with pineapple juice and chunks. Other used fishes are: tuna, halibut, kingfish, snapper or rockfish. The meat, especially the fish, is sometimes flavored with bouquet garnish, made of laurel, parsley and thyme.
