Very refreshing soup that can be served even in the summer. You can add more vegetables according to taste. I like to roast the chicken breast on a pan before adding to the soup, as I find it adds a bit more flavour.
Traditional curry recipe. Thyme, allspice and Scotch bonnet peppers are some ingredients used in Jamaican cuisine. Allspice is a berry of the pimiento tree so it is also known as pimento or Jamaican pepper. It is called allspice because it tastes like a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. So if you wanted to, you could substitute a cinnamon stick for the allspice in this. Serve with rice and salad. Note - prep is fairly short, but cooking is approx 1 1/2 hours
Escovitch is the Jamaican version of the Spanish Escabéche (searing of meat or fish and adding to a vinegar salad, served cold or at room temperature). The fish is cooked and then a spicy marinade is added. I’ve used red snapper but you could use any other firm fish such as rainbow trout.
Peas in this recipe refers to beans. This island staple is also known as 'Jamaican coat of arms.' You can add chili to make it spicy if you prefer. No need to soak the kidney beans before cooking in this recipe
