The Ultimate Hummus Recipe.

It's funny how I kept telling people that I'm not a fan of Hummus and just didn't understand the sort of current 'Hummus Hype".. until I started making my own. While Hummus may seem exotic, it's probably one of the simplest recipes to put together. There's no cooking involved, can be done in under 5 minutes and you can play around with flavors you like. In my case I like my Hummus to have a slight kick, with a subtle smoky undertone. Any excuse to put "Caribbean Sunshine" (scotch bonnet peppers) to use.

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.

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.

Caribbean Coconut Shrimp Bisque Recipe.

Caribbean Coconut Shrimp Bisque Recipe.

20 April 2012

At no time was shrimp bisque ever cooked in our home when we were growing up. That would not be considered a traditional soup and to be quite honest.. it was too fancy and ‘light” compared to the thick hearty soups our mom would make! However with the changing landscape of Caribbean cuisine, it’s quite […]

Caribbean Inspired Chicken Lo Mein.

Caribbean Inspired Chicken Lo Mein.

18 April 2012

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, the cuisine of the Caribbean is heavily influenced by the many cultures and people which make up the melting pot the Caribbean is. This chicken lo mein  is something I remember purchasing from food trucks in San Fernando (next to the train engine) after school. Back then the menu […]

Split Peas Dhal With Salted Pigtail.

Split Peas Dhal With Salted Pigtail.

14 April 2012

Dhal is one of those thick soup-like dishes we make in the Caribbean, especially those islands where there’s an East Indian influence. Basically split peas soup, enhanced with turmeric and in some cases… salted meats, as we’ll be using today. Very similar to the traditional dhal recipe and the lentil peas mixed dhal recipe I […]

Hot Cross Buns.

09 April 2012

  Easter wasn’t a time of egg hunts or chocolate bunnies when we were kids. It was all about going to church, listening to our dad read the bible on Good Friday, watching King Of Kings on TV and how could one forget the special fish lunch. It was a time when our mom would […]

True to the vibrant island vibe, this banana dessert combines the use of two ingredients we’re known for in the Caribbean. Fragrant ripe bananas and shredded dry coconut for that wonderful nutty finish.

Rich And Creamy Caribbean Pumpkin Rice.

Rich And Creamy Caribbean Pumpkin Rice.

08 March 2012

Pumpkin rice rice is a dish I only just started to appreciate after having it at an “Island Grill” fast food joint in Kingston,  just over a year ago. Though that pumpkin rice was rather bland, it worked well with the side of spicy jerk chicken and creamy coleslaw or maybe I was terribly hungry […]
