One of Puerto Rico's signature dishes. It can be main, side dish or just an appetizer. The Cod is finely chopped, therefore, the flavor is not so strong. Very high in calories but worth having at least two once a year!
"This savory recipe makes a distinctive change from sweet zucchini bread and uses harvest from your herb garden, too. Spread slices with softened goat cheese for an appetizer or serve as an accompaniment to a main-dish soup or salad." -Hobbyfarmers.com
In Puerto Rico, these wrapped goodies are made in large quantities during the holidays, often with several family members sharing in the tasks of preparation. A food processor or blender makes the job easier. There are different versions. This one has a lot of ingredients but it is still very good. You can also stuff them with chicken instead of pork. (Time to make depends on how much help you can get!)
Another signature dish. Very tasty, best wneh served cold. This recipe comes from elboricua.com. There are different recipes. I haven't tried this one in specific so if you have a better one, let me know!
I found this one at a Puerto Rican website (El Boricua.com) when I was not able to get a hold of GMa to tell me how to make them. :)
It makes the process way much simple than the traditional. Yummy yummy!
In Puerto Rico pinchos are grilled pork or chicken kabobs. They are just to die for! They are served with a slice of bread at the very tip. If you don't have a pilón (mortar and pestle) you can mix your marinade in a food processor or blender. From about.com.
Weekend mornings are very busy at local bakeries, everyone is looking for either freshly made Pan de Agua or Pan de Manteca. This bread is good by itself, with some butter or to make a loaded ham,cheese and egg sandwish. This recipe is from elboricua.com
Very tasty way of using ripe plantains. This is one of my favorite dishes!
Plantains need to be yellow and a little tender for this recipe. Plantains that have many dark spots and are very very tender should not be used.
I got this recipe from a Kitchenaid cookbook. It is very very good. This is also the first bread I've ever made!!!!
I added couple more things to the recipe; for example I added garlic powder and I also added pressed garlic into the butter along with some italian herb blend.
The recipe is posted as it is in the book.
Since it yields two loaves, I froze 1.5 of it.
"You can use commercially canned or homegrown pumpkin for this recipe. If doing the latter, bake the pumpkin rather than boil it in order to get a drier, denser product. After scraping the baked flesh from the rinds, use an electric mixer to beat until smooth. Remove any tough, fibrous pieces that didn’t cook down." - Hobbyfarmers.com
Very healthy and tasty recipe. I wanted to stuff chicken breasts but didn't have some of the ingredients for the recipes posted here in RZ. I saved the trip to the grocery store and came up with this one.
