A dish called Salmagundi was also popular among sailors and pirates. It was made of whatever was available. Often, the dish included chopped meat ( beef, fish, chicken, pig, turtle, etc.), eggs, anchovies, onions, grapes, cabbage and herring. Salt, pepper, garlic, oil and vinegar were often used as seasoning. It was made in large quantities and could keep pirates going for almost a week or more.
