    Yah! Love carib home food. Made this with lotsa scotch bonnet, sweet bell, french shallots, green onion and yellow onion and put on baked potato and baked sweet potato…cool. Very tasty. Will do on rice and pease next. May put some grilled shrimps in it too – you never know. BTW, very small pieces of straight up chix mixed into traditional ceasar dressing instead of anchovies is outright killa.

    Smoked herring also goes very well with cornmeal cou-cou (a Bajan national dish) or breadfruit cou-cou

    Thanks for this recipe. I am preparing this for my Trini husband so I have to get it right. (Lol). I am Barbadian and my Gran did it a little differently.

    I love red herring with breadfruit coucou (creamed) but in a tomato based sauce. I also strip it in small bite sized pieces and but in jar with sliced onions, a scot bonnet pepper and some olive oil. Let it sit for a couple of weeks and eat on biscuite (crackers). SWEET MURDER!!!!!! BAJAN
