Recipe by Oolala

From The Multi-Cultural Cuisine of Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean, the Naparima Girls' High School Cookbook. I borrowed the book and want to input the recipes that interest me! You can vary this recipe by substituting lemon or lime juice with 1 tbsp., prepared mustard or or 2 tsp. dry mustard.
