Not only is fishing an important industry in Asilah, fish is also a specialty at many of the restaurants in town. Every visitor to Asilah should take advantage of the opportunity to taste some of the fresh local catch.
A trip down to the harbor is a great way to see the wide variety of fresh fish and seafood caught everyday. If you fancy cooking some up yourself, 4pm is a good time to go. Alternatively, you can wait for a fresh delivery brought into town in the evenings (sold in front of Bab Homar). Sword fish, hake and sole are usually available.
