From La Comida del Barrio, May 2003, by Aarón Sanchez and found at epicurious.com. This milk shake is a Puerto Rican and Cuban favorite; Palacio de Los Jugos on Flagler Street in Miami specializes in jugos and makes great tropical-fruit batidos. The fruit combinations are endless — try a mixture of strawberry and kiwi or guava and pineapple — and you can even use coconut milk instead of whole and spike with a shot of rum.
At The Great House at Villa Madeleine in St. Croix, they often use a native fish called wahoo for this interesting dish, but swordfish is another nice choice. They also make the chutney with the very hot Scotch bonnet pepper. A serrano chili produces a slightly milder version. Found at epicurious.com.
From Sarah Ainley’s book, The World’s Best Recipes, Caribbean section. “This dessert is a delicious family favorite. A richer version can be made with fresh cream instead of evaporated milk. It can also be made using other dried fruit – mango is particularly good.” Cook time does not include the 30 minutes standing time.
I received this recipe from a friend in Barbados. Its easy, and tastes great. Not very healthy though... I found that a hand (immersion) blender fits perfectly into a can of regular corn to cream it, if you need to.
From Sarah Ainley’s book, The World’s Best Recipes, Caribbean section. “When plantains are yellow, they are ripe and ready to enhance most meat, fish or vegetarian dishes. The riper the plantain, the darker and sweeter they are.” The amount of oil is just approximate; use just what you need to get the plantains fried.
A sweet coconut bread with a light almond flavor and little bits of dried fruit. Eat a slice as a snack, dessert, or as toast for breakfast. The bread is a little crumbly (like banana bread,) and absolutely delicious! from caribbeanchoice.com
