Roasted Breadfruit With Smoked Herrings.

Roasted Breadfruit With Smoked Herrings.

This is one of those dishes which immediately takes me back to the Caribbean and my childhood days. Mom would usually make this for us (myself, brother and dad) the odd Saturday dad didn't have to go to work. The breadfruit came directly off my grandmother's tree and it was roasted on an open fire in a coal pot for that true island goodness. While I don't have a coal-pot, nor can I achieve the same unique flavor it gives the breadfruit, this dish is still incredible. Definitely my idea of comfort food.

The Ultimate Plantain Frittata.

The Ultimate Plantain Frittata.

While not something you'd traditionally see in the Caribbean, I came up with this recipe a few years ago when I had friends visiting for the weekend. The idea behind this frittata was to include 3 things we're passionate about (ingredients) in the Caribbean... Salted Cod, Fresh Herbs and Ripe Plantains. You can be as creative as you want in your version.
