Fried Fish and Milkshakes

Our first evening in Taroundant, we decided to let the Baker lead the way. And, as usual, she didn’t steer poorly. She found a delightful local fried fishery, that was so full that even getting in the door was a bit of a challenge.  At the shop, the cook dredged fish in cornmeal and dumped them into a wok of hot oil for a few minutes, then pulled them out and fanned them out across a bed of parsley to serve as an advertisement to those who might be strolling by.

The fish was served with small saucers full of a tomato and olive filled sauce, a second, vinegar-spiked slightly hot sauce, and bread, to enjoy in between bites of fish.

After finishing a basket of fish, we headed next door to a local ‘laiterie’, essentially, a milkshake shop. There we ordered some local yogurt, and a milkshake made of dried fruit, with lots of dates.
