Simple Oven Jerk Fish Recipe.

With Easter around the corner I’ve had several requests for fish recipes, so I thought I’d share a simple technique for making Jamaican style jerk snapper (fish), but with store bought jerk marinade and in your oven. I agree that making your own jerk marinade is much better and using a grill with coals and [...]

The Ultimate Oxtail Stew.

I became a fan of oxtails after the prices sky-rocketed.. yea my luck. Back when I first moved to Canada, the butchers would practically beg customers to take oxtails off their counter. That’s definitely not the case today. The odd time it comes on sale it’s usually around $3.50 / lb, but the quality is [...]

If you travel within the Caribbean, most likely you’ve found yourself on the regional airline LIAT and I’m sure you’ve been reading my delicious offerings in their inflight magazine ZiNG.

Traditional Caribbean Sorrel Drink.

Traditional Caribbean Sorrel Drink.

23 March 2014

If there’s one drink in the Caribbean which screams “Christmas” it would definitely have to be sorrel. From Trinidad and Tobago in the south (include Guyana in mainland South America) to Jamaica in the north, as you make you way up the island chain… islanders all appreciate a cold glass of sorrel on those hot [...]

Coconut Curry Mussels Done The Caribbean Way.

Coconut Curry Mussels Done The Caribbean Way.

18 March 2014

Very much like the ‘Curry Lobster” recipe I shared a while back, Mussels is not something you’ll find normally being prepared in the Caribbean, unless it’s at one of the many high end restaurants we have catering to a mainly tourist clientele. This curry mussels recipe is basically my take on a shellfish which is [...]

Caribbean Style Tuna Sandwich Spread.

Caribbean Style Tuna Sandwich Spread.

13 March 2014

During my early years in Canada, mine was the typical immigrant story. Little money, hard work with long hours (school in my case) and quick meals. This meant eating a lot of what we would we would call “bachie’ (short for bachelor) food.. mostly canned fish and meats which were fast to put together and [...]

A Classic Caribbean Split Peas And Salted Pigtail Soup.

A Classic Caribbean Split Peas And Salted Pigtail Soup.

09 March 2014

This is a take on a basic but extraordinary soup my grandmother would make with simple ingredients like yellow split peas, herbs, salted cod instead of salted pig tail and tons of dumplings. She lived her entire 99 years without ever touching pork. However I love pork on my fork, so in my version I’ll [...]

The Ultimate Curry Turkey Necks Recipe.

The Ultimate Curry Turkey Necks Recipe.

23 February 2014

One thing you’ll quickly notice about the cuisine of the Caribbean is that we ‘doh waste”. This usually means that things like necks, backs, feet.. even pigs ears, trotters and snouts are used to perfection in many of the dishes throughout the region. We never had turkey necks (or turkey as a matter of fact) [...]

I was doing a chef’s table a few months back and I wanted to include a tropical salad in the mix, so Caron suggested I do a take on ‘mango chow’ and hinted that I should add a “Canadian’ element by using some sliced strawberries in the mix. It was such a hit with the [...]

Baby Pak Choi With Salted Cod The Caribbean Way.

05 February 2014

One of my favorite dishes growing up on the islands was when mom would make pak choi with leftover stewed pork. The slight crunch from the pak choi (not over-cooked) combined with the flavors brought to the game by the tender pieces of stewed pork with hints of ginger.. I may have to get that [...]

The Best Brussels Sprouts Recipe Ever – A Caribbean Twist!

The Best Brussels Sprouts Recipe Ever – A Caribbean Twist!

30 January 2014

Brussels sprouts is one ingredient you won’t necessarily get in the Caribbean, unless it’s in a package in the frozen section of the grocery store. However, we’ve perfected the art of cooking cabbage so I thought I’d use one of the methods we employ to prepare cabbage and adapt it for brussels sprouts. The goal [...]

However with use of wonderful Caribbean flavors you’ll find that you’ll purposely make extra rice just so you can have this [...]

This Trinbago (Trinidad and Tobago) style Pommecythere Chow (pickled ambarella) is so simple to make that you really don’t need a recipe. However, for those of you not familiar with the whole concept of ‘chow’ will find this helpful. Chow in Trinidad and Tobago and many of the southern Caribbean islands is simply fruit (tart) [...]

Kurma is one of those snacks I fondly recall buying with my daily school allowance at recess and at lunch break as it was not something regularly made at home and which kid does not like sweets? Mind-you, come Divali time, mom’s cousin who was a Hindu would always invite us to her home to [...]

29 December 2013

Cabbage is another one of those vegetables mom could never get us to eat, unless it was in chow mein or if she added leftover stewed meats to it. However these days you can always find cabbage in our crisper in the fridge as I add it to many dishes I prepare. Especially if I’m [...]

At the time of putting this recipe together the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion was the hottest pepper in the world and in all honesty it was indeed pure fyah! I had never tasted anything as hot and some may think I’m nuts for using them in a pepper sauce. However there’s news coming out of the [...]
