Insanely Spicy Canadian Mother In Law.

Insanely Spicy Canadian Mother In Law.

After getting a request for a new "Mother-In-Law" recipe via a YouTube comment , the spicy condiment we use on the side of many curry dishes in Trinidad and Tobago, I decided to do things a little different and do my interpretation of a Canadian version. I believe the name comes from the 'spicy' nature of one's mother in law, mixed with different textures and flavors (complexity). Do keep in mind that you can control the amount of heat of this condiment by the number and type of hot peppers you use.

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.

5 Tips To Cooking Perfect Curry Shrimp.

5 Tips To Cooking Perfect Curry Shrimp.

I had a recent request via Instagram asking for tips on cooking curry shrimp. According to the person who contacted me, they encounter over-cooked and bland shrimp every time they give it a go in the kitchen. It got to the point where they've now given up on ever cooking curry shrimp again. I can assure you that if you also encounter this problem, you're not alone. Experience also tells me that even many of the West Indian restaurants also get it wrong the majority of time.

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.

Jamaican Curry Goat Recipe.

Jamaican Curry Goat Recipe.

While we use the same ingredients and for the most part cook similar dishes, you'll find that as you travel across the West Indies the technique we employ on each island differs. That is exactly the case with one of the most famous dishes coming out of the Caribbean, Curry Goat. A curry goat from Trinidad and Tobago will most certainly be different than one from Grenada and just as unique as one done in a Guyanese or Haitian home. I've shared several methods of cooking curry goat so far, but it seems we've not had a go at a Jamaican version, until now.

Tasty Curry Crab Simplified.

Tasty Curry Crab Simplified.

Curry Crab and Dumplings is one of the most iconic dishes on our sister island of Tobago. If you've ever had the pleasure of hitting the beach at Store Bay (where you also catch the glass bottom boats to Buccoo Reef and Nylon Pool), you've surely walked pass many of the food vendors selling this classic curry dish. While I've shared this recipe before, I was asked via Instagram to share a simplified version that's easy to prepare and just as tasty as the classic I shared about 4 years ago.

Fry-Dry Curry Shrimp A Family Classic.

Fry-Dry Curry Shrimp A Family Classic.

This is definitely one of those dishes that takes me back to my childhood. Seafood was our mortal enemy (with the exception of fried King Fish) of ours when we were kids, however this fried dried curry shrimp was something we always requested from mom. Normally served with hot-out-the oven coconut bake. Unlike traditional curry shrimp where you'd normally have a gravy or sauce and sometimes you'd find pieces of potato in the mix, this curry shrimp is all about that rich and intense curry flavor.

Curry Shrimp With Pumpkin.

Curry Shrimp With Pumpkin.

Pumpkin and shrimp are two things mom struggled to get us to eat as kids, but as an adult I can't get enough. Looking back I wish I had started eating pumpkin from a younger age as the pumpkins mom would use came directly from the small garden we had at the back of our home in rural Trinidad. Grown organically and under the brilliant Caribbean sun... I still recall mom commenting "gosh this pumpkin cook real gud" every time she made a pumpkin dish.

Oven Roasted Curry Chicken Recipe.

Oven Roasted Curry Chicken Recipe.

Mom never swayed from the 'traditional' way of cooking curry chicken (as done in the Caribbean) when she would sort us out with a good curry and dhalpuri roti on the occasional Sunday morning. While nothing can compare to such a classic method of cooking curry chicken, I'm always looking for ways to change things up a bit. In this recipe we'll marinate the chicken in a rich yogurt curry marinade, before roasting it in the oven.

Curry Pork With String Beans.

Curry Pork With String Beans.

I may have mentioned before that while growing up on the islands mom never made any sort of curry dishes with pork, so I credit my aunt Victoria (I speak about her in my book) for passing the basics of this recipe on to me, when I lived with her during my early years in Canada. Her version included a bit more cooking (I like my beans with a slight crunch) and a little heavier on the curry, so this version of curry pork with green beans is personalized to my liking.
