4 Delicious Eastern Caribbean Dishes


The best of the Caribbean is its food and culture!

But for now, I am only going to share with you on Caribbean food, since Caribbean culture would require a whole other article by itself.

So let me provide you with the ingredients and cooking methods to prepare some mouth-watering Caribbean food recipes from four (4) of my favourite Caribbean islands - Grenada, St. Vincent, St. Lucia and Dominica.

Recipe No. 1: Grenadian Oil Down

This mouth-watering Caribbean steam down, which is Grenada’s national dish, will tempt coconut and meat lovers alike. It is cooked in coconut milk and with an assortment of meats, which enhance the flavour.

Ingredients

lb. Salt meat

lb. Chicken legs, wings or breast

1 large Breadfruit or 2 medium Breadfruits peeled

2 to 2 1/2 cups Coconut milk

1 medium Onion chopped

8-10 young Dasheen or Callaloo leaves

1/8 medium Pumpkin

2 medium Carrots chopped

1 sprig of each (Celery, Chive and Thyme)

4 green peppers chopped

3 tablespoons (Turmeric, Saffron or Curry)

1 lb. White Flour (to make dumplings)

1 tablespoon butter

1/2 teaspoon Salt

Preparation of Dumplings

Place the last 3 ingredients (flour, butter and salt) in a bowl. Mix them together and gradually stir in water. Knead and roll into a stiff or tough dough. Roll dumplings in desired shape(s) - round or long.

Method of Cooking

- Boil salt meat for 15 minutes in a heavy pot or pour boiling water on the salt meat, leave for 10 minutes and then drain.

- Wash the Breadfruit(s) and cut in half vertically.

- Then cut each half in 2 or 3 pieces vertically, depending on the size of the Breadfruit.

- Remove the gut on the inside of each piece of breadfruit. Only about 1 to 1 1/2 inches of breadfruit, from inside to outer skin, should remain.

- Peel of the green outer skin on each piece of breadfruit.

- Arrange a layer of breadfruit pieces (about half of the total pieces) at the bottom of the pot.

- Place the meats on top of the breadfruit.

- Add the pumpkin, carrots and dumplings on top of the meats

- Arrange the other half of breadfruit pieces on top of the meats..

- Wash dasheen leaves, bundle together and roughly cut up and spread on top of everything.

- Add (Turmeric, Saffron or Curry), onion, celery, chive, thyme and seasoning peppers.

- Finally, pour the coconut milk over everything (grate the coconut from scratch and mix in water to make the coconut milk or use pre-packaged coconut powder and mix with water to make coconut milk) .

-Cover the pot tightly, cook on medium heat until the coconut milk becomes oily and nearly all the water is absorbed; that is for approximately 45- 55 minutes.

Recipe No. 2: Vincentian Roasted Breadfruit and Fried Jack Fish

This recipe from St. Vincent uses the same Caribbean provision as in Recipe 1 - breadfruit - but prepared in a different way. And this time it's roasted and mixed with the catch of the day - Jack Fish.

Ingredients

1 large Roasted Breadfruit, peeled and sliced vertically in inch thick slices.

1 lb. Jack Fish

Lime or lemon juice (to remove freshness from the Jack Fish)

cup minced or chopped seasoning (onion, chive, garlic, thyme, sweet peppers)

1 tbsp. salt

1 cup Flour (for coating the Jack Fish)

Vegetable Oil (for frying the Jack Fish)

Preparation of Roast Breadfruit

-Place breadfruit, with its skin, on an open charcoal or wood fire outdoors, and turn the breadfruit at intervals until it is totally charred OR pierce the Breadfruit with a fork or skewer before placing it in the oven, bake it at a moderate temperature (250% to 350%) for about 1 hours or until soft.

- Push a skewer or knife through the breadfruit from top to bottom. If the skewer/knife comes out clean, then the breadfruit is roasted.

- Remove breadfruit skin and slice in inch slices.

Preparation of Fried Jackfish

- Clean Jack Fish.

- Pour lime or lemon juice over Jack Fish.

- Let marinate for about 10 - 15 minutes.

- Dry Jack fish with paper towels.

- Add salt to minced seasoning.

- Rub mixed seasoning over fish and set aside for 5 - 10 minutes

- Place flour in a bowl for coating Jack Fish

- Coat Jackfish on both sides in flour.

- Heat oil in frying pan on medium heat until very hot.

- Place Jackfish in frying pan and fry, for approx. 4 minutes or until golden brown.

- Turn Jackfish on the opposite side and cook until golden brown.

- Serve Jackfish with sliced, roasted Breadfruit.

LET'S GO GRENADA!!! - The Spice of the Caribbean : Your next vacation spot!

What's there to LOVE about these islands?!

These four (4) Eastern Caribbean islands - Grenada, St. Vincent, St. Lucia and Dominica - have these loveable things in common:

* World-renowned, white, sandy beaches and sparkling waters - no joke!

* Lush rainforests with rare tropical plant and bird species.

* Beautiful dive sites with clear waters and great underwater visibility.

* Small and personal - ideal for a honeymoon or romantic getaway - the total area of each island is less than 800 square kilometres and their respective populations are less than 175,000.

* And if you want to island hop. No worries! They all use the same currency - Eastern Caribbean dollars (EC dollars), which has a conversion rate of US$1=EC$2.7169

Mouth-watering Food Recipes

Each island has its unique national dish which is featured in this article and which is representative of its culture and is usually cooked on special occasions or national holidays, such as Independence and Carnival.

      I haven't tried any of these recipes yet, but I would love to. Coming from the UK originally I have developed a taste for many different food from many different countries and rarely eat what would be considered a traditional English meal now. I much prefer to try out food from other countries and these Caribbean recipes sound delicious.

      One of my all time favorite meals was a lobster dish made with oranges. I had it at a makeshift restaurant on a beach in Jamaica. I'll never forget how delicious it was and how lovely the woman who cooked and served it to us was. It was a magical evening and a memory I treasure.

      @TolovajWordsmith: Looking forward to Caribbean food being served on your table next Tolovaj! Don't disappoint me. Well I think the mark of a good cook is being able to take a recipe and make it your own by adding or subtracting flavours and ingredients. So without tasting your creations, I'll have to say you're a good cook judging by what you tell me :)

      I am always on the hunt for some new ideas to use in my kitchen. I rarely use the recipe as it is, but like to incorporate new spices or techniques in food I already know how to make. So I kinda domesticate French, Chinese and Mexican food to put it on my table. Maybe I shall try Caribbean next?

      When I went to St Vincent I tried the Breadfruit and I loved it. I never had jack fish but I did try mahi mahi, king fish, blue marlin and red snapper - all of which were wonderful. I have to agree with you about Caribbean food - it is delicious, although I found most of the sands around St Vincent were black sand and not golden.

      Thanks Mujjen for visiting and squid-liked my lens: Mouth-watering Caribbean Food Recipes - Part 1. I am glad you dared to try the local dishes. I always feel that part of enjoying and appreciating a visit to another country is tasting the food which speaks in part to the country's culture. You did good!

      i think i need to try the Grenadian oil down, it sounds really delicious. I still remember the first time I went to Trinidad, and my friends made it a point to let us try all the local dishes. It was fantastic!
