The Ultimate Plantain Frittata.

With all the requests I've been getting for more breakfast / brunch type recipes, I thought I'd share a classic Plantain Frittata with you. 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.

The Ultimate Curry Corn Recipe.

As a kid growing up on the islands, I can't remember mom ever making curry corn. And while it's quite popular in Trinidad and Tobago and some of the other islands of the Caribbean today, I only started hearing about it about this dish a few years now. While in Trinidad a few days ago my neighbor gave me a sample of her version to try and while it was very tasty, it wasn't 'my' version. Which I'm about to share with you today. Yes, those of you requesting more vegetarian / vegan recipes will luv this one.

Classic Caribbean Beef Pelau.

During those cold and nasty winter days in January and February I always try to add a little Caribbean sunshine in our home/kitchen in Canada, with a big pot of bubbling Pelau. A delicious one pot dish packed with ingredients and flavors of the Caribbean which immediately takes me back to my childhood on the islands. However back then it was the dish of choice (usually the Chicken version) for those days at the beach.

Crispy Golden Cassava (yuca, manioc) Fries.

06 April 2013

I love ground provisions (yam, dasheen, sweet potato, cassava, eddoes, etc) with a passion, so I’m always looking for new ways to include them on my plate. Fresh cut fries (potato) is a huge hit in our home, especially the way I get then super crispy on the outside and warm and creamy on the […]

Cow Heel (cow foot) Soup Recipe.

31 March 2013

Ladies and gents, I must confess that I’m not a fan of cow heel (cow foot or bull foot) soup and if it were up to me, this recipe would not have been found here as I normally don’t cook this. However, a fan on the CaribbeanPot.com Facebook page sent in a request and being […]

Peanut Butter Stuffed Prunes.

27 March 2013

It’s always the little things in life you tend to cherish and miss. As a boy on the islands I fondly recall these wonderful treats at parties and any sort of social gathering and how much they remind me of happy times. When one thinks about dessert, prunes is definitely not something which comes to […]

Chadon Beni (shado beni, culantro) Garlic Sauce.

Chadon Beni (shado beni, culantro) Garlic Sauce.

17 March 2013

I assume our love affair with garlic sauce (like garlic aioli) is influenced by the food immigrants from the Middle East brought with them to our shores many moons ago. Did you know… “The last group of immigrants to venture to colonial Trinidad originated in the region previously known as Greater Syria, which comprises of […]

Fried Seasoned Red Snapper.

15 March 2013

The only way our mom would get us to eat fish as kids was when she would pan fry King Fish and serve it to us with ketchup and a little pepper sauce. I guess it’s the same way our daughters learned to appreciate fish, as my mom (grandma) would purposely make fried fish when […]

Cheese Paste Sandwich Spread.

07 March 2013

If you’re from the Caribbean and you’ve never had a cheese paste sandwich for lunch, your mommy didn’t love you. I’m just joking, but just about everyone I speak with about having cheese paste sandwiches, they can all relate.. no matter which island they’re from. Back in the day I recall people also adding a […]

Lamb Chops Braised In A Coconut Curry Sauce.

01 March 2013

As a young fella growing up on the islands I recall lamb not being a very popular choice when it came to meats we prepare (quite honestly.. our mom never made it). Back then and today goat still is the champ when it comes to a good curry. With variations on the recipe itself, you […]

Apple Mango Chicken Salad.

Apple Mango Chicken Salad.

25 February 2013

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m no fan of chicken breast or “white meat”, so this recipe came about out of the necessity to use that part of the chicken after having roasted chicken for dinner. Now we purposely buy chicken breast, as this apple mango chicken salad is simply outstanding and it’s […]

Tasty Vegetarian Mashed Yams.

15 February 2013

Did you know that the tuber most people outside the Caribbean call yams are really a milder sweet potato? On the islands we have several varieties of yams and in this recipe I’ll be using Kush Kush, which is probably one of the more harder varieties to source. I recall as a young fella on […]

There’s nothing quite like the aroma of roasting meat in the oven, especially when you have that eager anticipation of  a lovely dinner. Though over the years I’ve modified this recipe from it’s original beginnings (our mom’s recipe) , it really one which I’m very proud and excited to share. As with the other recipes […]
