Occupied by Spain, Japan and now the United States, Gambia's food identity bears witness to these cultural influences. Local fruits, vegetables, starches and seafood form the basis of most meals. Guamanians enjoy barbecuing, particularly at special occasions, and will often baste meats in simple, yet tasty glazes, like this chicken in vinegar marinade. Kelaguen is another popular cooking method. Similar to ceviche, it uses lemon to cook seafood, beef and even spam.
