Quick And Simple Salmon Fried Rice.

Quick And Simple Salmon Fried Rice.

Here's a quick and tasty recipe putting leftover rice (which you may already have in the fridge) and a can of salmon to work, for what I assure you is an incredible one-pot dish. While the use of the can (or 'tin' as we would normally say in the Caribbean) may seem a little strange if you've never tried it... I quickly learned that it truly is a great addition to what could potentially be a boring fried rice. This is one of the many go-to recipes I employ when lunch-time hits and I have some rice in the fridge.

The Ultimate Grilled Salmon Recipe.

The Ultimate Grilled Salmon Recipe.

As we wrap up the annual July Month of Grilling for 2017, I thought I'd share one of my favorite salmon recipes with you. While we had a lot of fresh-from-the-ocean fish and seafood on the islands when I was growing up, for some reason our salmon always came from a can (say 'tin') for some reason. Especially around Easter-time when mom would prepare a host of ground provisions, topped with stewed canned salmon. While I still use the canned stuff, I do enjoy the fresh (as can be expected since I don't live near the ocean) salmon we get here Ontario.. when I can afford such!

Island Style Grilled Shrimp.

Island Style Grilled Shrimp.

If you're hosting friends this summer for a backyard BBQ, you'll definitely want to ensure these grilled shrimp takes priority on your menu. A quick bath in a wicked fruity marinade, then we'll grill them quickly over a propane flame (wood or charcoal works great too) so they fully cooked but still plump and juicy. The natural sugars from the orange and mango juice combined with the slight kick from the hot smoked paprika, will have your family and guests begging for more.

5 Tips To Cooking Perfect Curry Shrimp.

5 Tips To Cooking Perfect Curry Shrimp.

I had a recent request via Instagram asking for tips on cooking curry shrimp. According to the person who contacted me, they encounter over-cooked and bland shrimp every time they give it a go in the kitchen. It got to the point where they've now given up on ever cooking curry shrimp again. I can assure you that if you also encounter this problem, you're not alone. Experience also tells me that even many of the West Indian restaurants also get it wrong the majority of time.

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.
