How To Cook Curry Pigeon Peas (from frozen).

How To Cook Curry Pigeon Peas (from frozen).

As a kid growing up on the islands you never really understand/appreciate what you have, especially when it comes to our local produce. I remember giving mom a difficult time during 'peas season' (usually from Dec to mid-June), as it would make it's way on the dinner table too often for my liking. We had a kitchen garden so many of the meals prepared came directly from that small plot of land behind our home. Today I'm stuck using the stuff from the can and the occasional time I can find it in the frozen section of the supermarket. Being based in Canada, the options are slim.. rare is the time you'd get fresh pigeon peas.

Amazing Curry Duck Done In The Oven (or slow cooker).

Amazing Curry Duck Done In The Oven (or slow cooker).

Here's one of those classic Caribbean curry dishes done a little different, to free up your time in the kitchen. Curry Duck is a hit on the islands, especially in Trinidad and Tobago where a large part of the population is of East Indian heritage (same can be said for Guyana as well) The duck of choice when making this type of curry is the Muscovy (Cairina moschata is a large duck native to Mexico, Central, and South America), which is traditionally raised by many village folks and farms for resale.

Coconut Curry Venison (deer).

Coconut Curry Venison (deer).

Any sort of game, including deer (venison) is what we call "wild meat" in the Caribbean and for the most part it's a sort of cherished delicacy, especially around Christmas and Carnival time. I have very fond childhood memories of going hunting with my brother and dad and into my early teens we would venture out with my friends. Though I went to school in San Fernando (city), most of my spare time was spent in the country side of Guaracara, so you'd find that I'm an outdoors person at heart.

Coconut Curry Mussels Done The Caribbean Way.

Coconut Curry Mussels Done The Caribbean Way.

Very much like the ‘Curry Lobster” recipe I shared a while back, Mussels is not something you’ll find normally being prepared in the Caribbean, unless it’s at one of the many high end restaurants we have catering to a mainly tourist clientele. This curry mussels recipe is basically my take on a shellfish which is […]

The Ultimate Curry Turkey Necks Recipe.

The Ultimate Curry Turkey Necks Recipe.

One thing you’ll quickly notice about the cuisine of the Caribbean is that we ‘doh waste”. This usually means that things like necks, backs, feet.. even pigs ears, trotters and snouts are used to perfection in many of the dishes throughout the region. We never had turkey necks (or turkey as a matter of fact) […]

Classic Coconut Curry Chicken With String Beans.

This is a delightful dish our mom would prepare whenever there was leftover chicken from the day before (usually on a Monday). She would curry the beans and the last 5 minutes or so add in the chicken pieces for the perfect accompaniment for boiled rice or hot roti off the tawa. In this version […]

Lamb Chops Braised In A Coconut Curry Sauce.

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 […]

Ultimate Curry Chicken?

Ultimate Curry Chicken?

A few months back I came across a wonderful video online of a fellow Trinbagonian living in the US who created a cooking video called “The Ultimate Curry Chicken” and though his method and ingredients of cooking curry chicken was a bit different than mine, I’m sure it was just as tasty.
