More Summer Menu Sneak Peaks ! I love Caribbean Cuisine and always reflect on my experiences in the Islands. From Miss Emily herself teaching me the Goombay Smash at the Blue Bee Bar to Salt Cod Fritters and Roti. Here are some inspired dishes for summer.
Pulled Chicken Roti... Carribean Flatbread with chicken stewed in curry and coconut milk, Fuji Apple-Mint Chutney, Crème Friache and Hummus.
Sugar Cane Skewered Shrimp Glazed in Tamarind with “Peas n Rice” and House Smoked Bacon.
Peas (Pigeon Peas) and Rice cooked Pilaf style with Tomato, Fresh Thyme, Onion and Bacon is the official National Dish of the Bahamas! See you can learn something reading my stuff!
Another great sign of summer are these baby squash we got in locally sourced from Fred at Roanoke Fruit & Produce Company with the blossoms. They are so delicate and beautiful we just crisp them with a light tempura and serve them with a white soy “ramen” broth. Thanks for Readin!
