Recipe by KateL

Entered for safe-keeping for ZWT5. From Sweet Hands: Island Cooking From Trinidad And Tobago. Green seasoning is used in many Caribbean dishes, and the recipe varies by country. Trinidad's uses shado beni (Mexican cilantro), a local herb very much like cilantro. Fresh shado beni can sometimes be found in West Indian markets but, if not, fresh cilantro is a good substitution.
