Let’s go to Martinique!
Today I'm excited to start a series of highlights of Caribbean islands themed "Let's Go". I'm starting with Martinique, the isle of sophistication (I branded them myself by the way) and also have a great opportunity to get you there if you are lucky.
A refreshing and simple spicy shrimp salad perfect for that summer menu, be it lunch or dinner
Is it heating up where you are yet? Florida is already getting into summer mode. Heat, rain and bright evenings. So I'm ready to throw in my summer salads for those days when you just want to cool down and not slave with an oven.
I used to skip and dodge salads all the time. I avoided them like a plague with the mindset "this is not a meal". But now I'm getting more and more into salads and this spicy shrimp salad (paired with the citrus dressing) is a major hit.
A refreshing orange juice dressing perfect for light summer salads.
I am on a mission to incorporate more "greens" into my eating regime. I felt the easiest way to start and not be too overwhelmed would be with salads. But what I think makes a salad amazing and not just "good" is the salad dressing.
This salad dressing I made is refreshing, light, sweet and tasty. I see myself sitting outside (under the shade) eating a salad pepped-up with this dressing.

It's snack time!! I realize that a huge area in Caribbean food is dedicated to desserts/snacks. I have an ongoing argument discussion going on, on what is the difference between a snack and a dessert, but anyway. We do make a lot of things that is not main course related. And we use a lot of our natural resources, especially the coconut.
Today's snack/dessert is coming from Jamaica (by the way of Portugal based on what I learned about this) and is a yummy delight. A sweet open faced tart that is packed with well-seasoned grated coconut that would surely have you reaching for me.
