Classic Island Pepper Shrimp.

Classic Island Pepper Shrimp.

Another Pepper Shrimp recipe Chris? Yea, it's definitely one of my weaknesses when it comes to snacking. We've gone though about 4 different styles of pepper shrimp to date, but I must admit that this one is my absolute favorite. And to be quite honest, it's not only super easy to make, it's also super-quick to put together. On it's own as a snack, as a side to fried rice or stir fried noodles or on sandwiches, you'll love this shrimp recipe. You can be the BOSS when it comes to how HOT you make it.

Simple Oven Roasted Sea Bass.

Simple Oven Roasted Sea Bass.

Did you get a chance to give the Caribbean Fish Stew Using Fresh Cod a test drive yet? As we continue in this #FishFrday mini-series, I've got a super simple way to do a whole fish in the oven. Using a Sea Bass (what's on sale at the fish store currently) as our main ingredient, we'll enhance things with some ginger, scallion, lemon and sliced fennel. Yea, the fennel was on sale so I was convinced by my wallet to bring it home from the grocery store. Since Fennel is not your typical "Caribbean" ingredient, you can use a large sliced onion instead.

Caribbean Fish Stew Using Fresh Cod.

Caribbean Fish Stew Using Fresh Cod.

I may have mentioned in previous 'fish' recipe posts that as a young fella on the islands (along with my siblings) we had NO luv for fish or any sort of seafood, except for shrimp and fried slices of King Fish. However as an adult I can't get enough of everything coming out of the ocean. With many requests for fish recipes, especially with Easter and Good Friday just around the corner, I thought I'd share this one using cod with you.

Roasted Breadfruit In Stewed Saltfish (salted cod).

Roasted Breadfruit In Stewed Saltfish (salted cod).

This recipe combines two of my favorite dishes into one glorious pot of comfort. After sharing the technique for roasting a breadfruit in an everyday oven, you knew I'd follow up with a recipe for putting that roasted breadfruit to use. Stewed saltfish (salted cod) is as classic as it gets when it comes to Caribbean culinary culture and in the event you cannot source breadfruit, you can use cassava, yam, sweet potato, green cooking bananas or even something as everyday as regular potatoes.

Tasty Curry Crab Simplified.

Tasty Curry Crab Simplified.

Curry Crab and Dumplings is one of the most iconic dishes on our sister island of Tobago. If you've ever had the pleasure of hitting the beach at Store Bay (where you also catch the glass bottom boats to Buccoo Reef and Nylon Pool), you've surely walked pass many of the food vendors selling this classic curry dish. While I've shared this recipe before, I was asked via Instagram to share a simplified version that's easy to prepare and just as tasty as the classic I shared about 4 years ago.

Yam With Stewed Saltfish.

Yam With Stewed Saltfish.

This is one fella you can take out of the Caribbean, but you can never take the "Caribbean" out of him. I've had the opportunity to dine in various countries / restaurants and while many of the dishes I've experienced we're definitely tasty, I will always head back 'home' to the islands when I need something comforting. Such is the case when I eat dishes containing yam, dasheen, green banana, eddoes, cassava and other ingredients we refer to as being 'provision'. I'll always remember weekends when mom would prepare this dish for me, my brother and dad.. my sisters we're somewhat picky eaters.

Fry-Dry Curry Shrimp A Family Classic.

Fry-Dry Curry Shrimp A Family Classic.

This is definitely one of those dishes that takes me back to my childhood. Seafood was our mortal enemy (with the exception of fried King Fish) of ours when we were kids, however this fried dried curry shrimp was something we always requested from mom. Normally served with hot-out-the oven coconut bake. Unlike traditional curry shrimp where you'd normally have a gravy or sauce and sometimes you'd find pieces of potato in the mix, this curry shrimp is all about that rich and intense curry flavor.

Curry Shrimp With Pumpkin.

Curry Shrimp With Pumpkin.

Pumpkin and shrimp are two things mom struggled to get us to eat as kids, but as an adult I can't get enough. Looking back I wish I had started eating pumpkin from a younger age as the pumpkins mom would use came directly from the small garden we had at the back of our home in rural Trinidad. Grown organically and under the brilliant Caribbean sun... I still recall mom commenting "gosh this pumpkin cook real gud" every time she made a pumpkin dish.

Caribbean Herb Grilled Fish

Caribbean Herb Grilled Fish

I may have mentioned this in the past, but growing up on the islands I never liked fish and I think the same can be said about my brother and sisters (mom had a tough time with us). While I outgrew this, I still think my sisters are not fans of fish to this day. My brother on the other hand, elevated his taste buds.. so it's not strange to see him at seafood restaurants in New York sitting behind a massive lobster feasting away. While my fav fish dish is my mom's curry Kingfish, during the summer months this grilled fish is something I do quite often.

Shrimp Chow – Spicy Shrimp Cocktail?

Shrimp Chow – Spicy Shrimp Cocktail?

"Dad, can you make me chow?" No Mango! "How about shrimp?" That was the brief discussion between Tehya and I a few weeks back when she got her routine craving for mango chow. A spicy pickle usually made with green (tart) mangoes, or any of the variety of fruits we have in the Caribbean. Had to admit, it was a brilliant idea. We both enjoy shrimp cocktail and with the sort of spicy base.. could this be the "Caribbean" version of shrimp cocktail?
