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!

Classic Tropical Fruit Punch – With No Added Sugar.

We have an abundance of outstanding fruits in the Caribbean so it's only natural that we make some of the best punch/drinks in the world. Debatable? Absolutely not! That brilliant Caribbean sunshine allows us to enjoy juicy, sweet and refreshing fruits, fresh off the tree. Unfortunately.. for some reason we're still addicted to 'sugar' as a people and it's truly a shame as there are ways we can avoid the use of additional sugars in our drinks.

How To Make Coconut Oil At Home.

As a kid growing up on the islands coconut oil was a norm. Not just for cooking, but it was our choice of skin lotion / moisturizer and it was also part of our daily hair treatment. If memory servers me correct I think my my sisters also used it in making their version of cocoa butter and different types of fragrant soaps. During my most recent trip to the islands dad shared his technique for making coconut oil as it was passed on to him from my great grand parents.

Sounds like a bad combo? Not if you’ve ever tasted my mom’s recipe for pumpkin (butternut squash in this case) cooked until it’s melted and as you turn of the heat you add some cooked shrimp to the mix. As a kid pumpkin and/or squash was one of those things we (my brother and sisters) […]

The love for fish broth (fish soup) I inherited from my uncle B. After a weekend of partying he’d usually make this soup as he claims it’s the best “thing” for a hangover and as his sidekick, I’d be very involved. Though it’s been years since I last had this, I’d have to say that […]

Looking to spice things up a bit in your life? I have the “recipe”. This one was inspired by my “mango chow” post a few weeks back. I remembered the days when as a kid I would chase down the doubles man on his bike for hot steamy “doubles” These vendors reinvented what we know […]

Zaboca (avocado) season was one of favourite times of the year when we were growing up on the islands. Now my seasons are reduced to summer, winter, spring and fall. As a kid we enjoyed, mango season, avocado season, plum season.. you get the picture… the fruit dictated the seasons for us. To this day, […]

I can still recall sitting in our “gallery” (porch) shelling peas as the first crop of pigeon peas was reaped (btw, shelling is the term used to describe removing the peas from the pod). My parents always planted corn and peas every rainy season so we enjoyed fresh peas cooked in many different forms. Stewed, […]

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you may have come to the conclusion that the majority of dishes we prepare includes the process of “stewing”. Unlike what’s considered a stew in places like Canada and the US, our stews are based on the principle of caramelizing the meats to give it that […]
