A lovely lady who hailed from Trinidad shared this spectacular recipe with me many years ago. She was a coworker who brought this dish in for special occasions or potluck dinners. It was always the first empty serving dish at every event! She was so marvelously fun to work with and such a sweetheart to share this fantastic recipe with me!
