Capitaine à la Saint-Louisienne refers to Senegal's dish made of perch (Nile perch) which is stuffed with spices and probably steamed, grilled, fried or baked like Mulet Farci à la Saint-Louisienne, which is one of Senegal's popular foods. Capitaine which literally means "captain" actually refers to Nile perch (Lates niloticus) , a marine fish that resembles a carp. Nile perch is prized throughout Africa for its culinary qualities. It is found in the Nile, Lake Chad, Lake Victoria and the Congo and Niger rivers. Nile perch is usually grilled or fried and served with hot sauce, like Piri-Piri. Saint-Louis was the first French settlement in Africa and is popular for its African-French ambiance. Saint-Louis is located near the Senegal-Mauratania border on the islands and coast near the mouth of the Senegal River, probably the reason why it is famous for fish dishes, like Mulet Farci à la Saint-Louisienne
