Kickin Grilled Orange Chicken.

Kickin Grilled Orange Chicken.

I do hope you’re enjoying this year’s installment of July’s Month Of Grilling as I am. The heat, smoke and raw flame of the grill excites me. Maybe it brings out the primitive instincts in me (caveman)? I’m a huge fan of the orange chicken you’ll find at Chinese restaurants… battered chicken pieces fried then […]

Eddoes With Leftover Trinbago Stewed Pork (recipe).

Eddoes With Leftover Trinbago Stewed Pork (recipe).

Whenever I make stewed pork (Trinidad style stewed pork) I purposely make extra so I have leftovers for adding to other dishes.. like this one using eddoes. As I’ve mentioned before I’m a ‘country’ boy at heart, so ground provisions (starchy root type vegetables) are a huge part of my diet (though expensive to buy […]

Sweet Potato Crab Cakes Recipe.

Sweet Potato Crab Cakes Recipe.

If you’ve priced or purchased crab meat from the fish market or grocers you’d know how expensive the stuff can be, so making crab cakes can be a bit hard on your pocket. My love for crab cakes is deep, so I came up with this recipe for using canned crab meat which is very […]

Simple Oven Jerk Fish Recipe.

Simple Oven Jerk Fish Recipe.

With Easter around the corner I’ve had several requests for fish recipes, so I thought I’d share a simple technique for making Jamaican style jerk snapper (fish), but with store bought jerk marinade and in your oven. I agree that making your own jerk marinade is much better and using a grill with coals and […]

Caribbean Style Tuna Sandwich Spread.

Caribbean Style Tuna Sandwich Spread.

During my early years in Canada, mine was the typical immigrant story. Little money, hard work with long hours (school in my case) and quick meals. This meant eating a lot of what we would we would call “bachie’ (short for bachelor) food.. mostly canned fish and meats which were fast to put together and […]

A Classic Caribbean Split Peas And Salted Pigtail Soup.

A Classic Caribbean Split Peas And Salted Pigtail Soup.

This is a take on a basic but extraordinary soup my grandmother would make with simple ingredients like yellow split peas, herbs, salted cod instead of salted pig tail and tons of dumplings. She lived her entire 99 years without ever touching pork. However I love pork on my fork, so in my version I’ll […]

Bodi Stewed In Coconut Milk And Salted Cod.

Bodi Stewed In Coconut Milk And Salted Cod.

As a young fella on the islands I fondly remember helping our mom pick (harvest) the mature bodi (bora, long-podded cowpea, asparagus bean, pea bean, snake bean, or Chinese long bean) which grew on the bamboo branches our dad would place next to the plants for the vine to spread. Something about the long beans […]

French Caribbean Creole Sauce For Fish And Grilled Meats.

French Caribbean Creole Sauce For Fish And Grilled Meats.

This Creole sauce is turning out to be one of the most controversial recipes I’ve shared to date. After posting the recipe video on the  Cooking Channel, there’s been a lot of comments about it not being authentic. Here’s the thing about cooking and recipes, it’s usually how you’ve learned to make the dish or […]

Tasty Vegetarian Mashed Yams.

Tasty Vegetarian Mashed Yams.

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 […]

Caribbean Style Guacamole.

Caribbean Style Guacamole.

I remember a few years back my cousin (jokingly) saying to us “my wife made me guacamole and roti for breakfast”. After the laughter subsided we soon realized that he may have a point. What we lovingly call zabouca choka in Trinidad and Tobago, is pretty much the same thing known as guacamole in other […]
