CURRIED FISH WITH PEAS

Trinis curry just about everything…and curry fish is a popular local dish here in Trinidad. Usually people prefer using kingfish or redfish but today I am using salmon. In my recipe I am also going to be including pigeon peas as it’s hubba’s favorite! Here is the recipe: INGREDIENTS: TO SEASON FISH: 1 salmon, sliced…

BAKED STUFFED RED FISH

Hubby brought home a nice sized red fish (lane snapper) and what better way to prepare that type of fish than baking! Today’s recipe is all about baking and stuffing a red snapper! Some thing to note is that you can stuff your fish with just about anything you like. For me, the aromatics are…

OCHRO (OKRA) RICE

Ochro rice is a delicious flavor packed one pot dish that you and your family will love! The main ingredient of course is ochro and coconut milk.

SHRIMP KEBABS

Shrimp would be my favorite seafood so naturally anything with shrimp gets my taste buds excited!

FISH BROTH

FISH BROTH! One of my absolute favorite types of local ‘soups’. Actually it IS my favorite!

I prefer macaroni as I…

TUNA SALAD

Part of my regular wifey routine on mornings entails preparing brunch for the Hubby. One of the easiest and a healthy brunch option I usually choose to make (very very often lol…maybe too often lol) is none other than tuna salad. It’s super quick, simple and not to mention absolutely tasty! The best part is…

SALTFISH BULJOL

Trinidadian style breakfast is one of the best if you ask me…maybe because I am Trini and have grown up around all sorts of delicious local foods. One item that is loved by manyyyy is saltfish  buljol! As with every dish we know, there are many different ways of preparing any particular one, which like…

TUNA CASSEROLE

Seafood and cheese??!! Some people say yes…some say no… I say yes! Lol… especially when it’s tuna casserole!!! The first time I ever had this was maybe 17-18 years ago at my aunt’s house in Jamaica. I was blown away!!! Anytime my mummy makes this now I cannot resist! Tuna casserole is perhaps the easiest…
