The Ultimate Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings.

The Ultimate Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings.

As we kick off another edition of our annual "July Month of Grilling", I thought I'd hit you with a recipe we first did in the oven during the early days of this website. However this time we'll try to replicate that authentic pimento wood flavor as you'd normally get at jerk joints in Jamaica. Yes, it's time for the Ultimate Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings. The marinade and technique can also be used on larger pieces of chicken with great success. But for now let's rock some of the best chicken wings you'll ever make/serve.

Tasty Island Style Roasted Chicken Drumsticks.

Tasty Island Style Roasted Chicken Drumsticks.

Here's a quick and simple chicken dish I usually make during the cooler months when I can use the oven without overheating the entire house. During the summer months these marinated chicken pieces also make its way onto my outdoor grill. The key with this recipe is the spiced rub we marinate the chicken with for maximum Caribbean appeal. If you decide to rock these on your outdoor grill, I'd recommend cooking them on an indirect heat or you'll risk burning the spices and you won't like the outcome.

Haitian Influenced Epis Chicken.

Haitian Influenced Epis Chicken.

After making a fresh batch of Epis (zepis) I decided to put it to use on some boneless chicken breast I had thawing in the sink for dinner. If you've ever struggled with dry and bland chicken breast (say chicken chest in the Caribbean) you'll definitely want to give this recipe a try. Moist, tender and packed with flavors of that Haitian Epis. I'm not sure if there's an actual Epis Chicken recipe in Haiti, but I was thoroughly impressed with this one.

Classic Caribbean Coconut Stewed Beef.

Classic Caribbean Coconut Stewed Beef.

Here's a dish I usually reach for when I'm homesick for the Caribbean and I need something comforting. Served with rice, pasta, ground provisions, roasted breadfruit or even garlic mashed potatoes, this coconut stewed beef is simply heavenly. While we didn't eat a lot of beef when I was growing up on the islands (we didn't like the taste of fresh butchered beef), the occasional time mom would fix this for dinner. it was always a hit. Since we'll slowly braise this for some time, you can use a very cheap cut of beef if you wanted.

Caribbean Stewed Pork Ribs.

Caribbean Stewed Pork Ribs.

We've grilled them, done a sort of "oven BBQ" during the winter and this coming summer I plan on doing a classic smoked/jerk over a charcoal fire, but for now I'd like to share yet another way to do pork ribs. You're free to use the short ribs type you get at the Asian markets (ones sold for making dry garlic ribs), baby-back or your regular rack of pork ribs for this recipe. Using the classic Caribbean technique of 'stewing' to start, then we'll slowly braise these ribs until they tender and packed with rich Caribbean flavor.

After posting an image of these crispy wings on Instagram a couple weeks back, the DM's we're rocking with requests for the recipe.

Infused with herbal flavors as we do on the islands, these wings are super simple to make and with the crispy finish.. you'll impress your family and guests. Guaranteed!

Quick Ham And Turkey Fried Rice.

Quick Ham And Turkey Fried Rice.

A few days after Christmas 2016 I was joined by my good friend Marc, who you would have been introduced to some time ago. Marc (Chef Marc) is a fellow Trinbagonian who's been knocking out the recipes and food-travel videos on his YouTube Channel "Chef Marc". This time Marc will be putting the leftover ham and turkey from the Christmas holidays for (one of) his signature fried rice. Using ingredients we already had in the fridge, Marc blazed through this recipe in a few minutes.

Cider Maple Habanero Peppersauce (hot sauce) Recipe.

Cider Maple Habanero Peppersauce (hot sauce) Recipe.

This past Fall I decided to do a peppersauce tribute to my home for the last 20 something years.. Canada. With a bumper crop of Habanero peppers (works great with scotch bonnets as well) in my small kitchen garden at the back of my house, the creative juices were flowing. Habaneros are some of my favorite spicy peppers, with the natural fruity undertones along with the fiery heat they possess. With a dose of fresh made apple cider (not vinegar) and some organic maple syrup, this pepper sauce was truly heavenly.

Roasted Breadfruit In Stewed Saltfish (salted cod).

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.

Stewed Black Eye Peas With Leftover Ham Bone.

Stewed Black Eye Peas With Leftover Ham Bone.

If you're looking for a bit of luck in the new year while enjoying a delightful dish, I got you. It's said that by cooking/enjoying black eye peas on the first day of the new year, brings a wealth of good luck the entire year. So I thought I'd put my leftover ham bone to use and share the recipe with you. Typically I'd do a traditional Caribbean soup with my ham bone, but I thought it would be an excellent way to add additional flavor to the somewhat bland black eye peas. Did you know that black eye peas is really a bean?
