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.

Our mom will verify that no matter where in the world you’re doing your parenting gig, you’ll encounter kids who refuse to eat chicken livers. I still recall the look on my face when we’d come home from school and you’d open the pot to see what mom prepared for dinner and with horror you […]

I still recall the first time I had this fried chicken at my aunt’s kitchen in Trinidad, topped with the juice of lime pepper sauce which had been marinating for a couple months. The succulent pieces of chicken was just outstanding with the drops of spicy sauce, but the crispy skin stole the show. It’s […]

Caribbean Smoked Turkey Soup.

25 September 2012

Smoked and/or salted meats are a must for a good Caribbean soup, so when my eyes crossed paths with the smoked turkey legs when we were out shopping a few days back.. let’s just say we shared a connection. Soups in the Caribbean are thick and hearty as most stews are in North America, so […]

Jerk Pork Sliders

Jerk Pork Sliders

12 September 2012

Traditionalists can be very picky when it comes to any food labelled as being ‘jerked’, as they feel any jerked meat must be done over pimento wood. Though I agree that there’s the unique taste from the smoke off the pimento wood… but when you can’t source the actual pimento wood you must rely on […]

A while back while doing one of those internet “20 Questions” I was asked “what would be your last meal?” and without even blinking my eye I said “my moms curry king fish”.
