Escoveitched fish is most often done using whole fish. The fish is fried and then covered in a pickled sauce of vinegar, peppers, carrots, cho cho, onion and pimento. It is often eaten at room temperature.
Rum Punch is perhaps our most popular cocktail and there are as many recipes for this celebrated punch as there are bartenders. I stick to the tried and true 1 of sour 2 of sweet 3 of strong and 4 of weak.
Rasta Stew can be very versatile and is often a crowd pleaser. Most often I mix carrot, potato, chick peas and cauliflower but you could use any combination that you like. Other essential ingredients are curry powder and coconut milk. Great for Vegans and Vegetarians.
Jerk Chicken is probably one of our most famous dishes. In Jamaica you can find many roadside stalls selling this staple. Crucial to a real jerk flavor is pimento – sometimes used in in the fire to smoke the chicken and often used in a paste or dry rub.
