Saltfish Run Down Recipe

Are you ready for a sweet hand dish? A dish that you know while you're eating you want to suck all your fingers and put the plate to your head to drink all the sauce up? This is what Run Down is to me. The kinda food that just sweet to taste (and not meaning sugar) and you're smiling eating as you put the spoon down into the plate.

This fish cooked down in a runny sauce of coconut milk seasoned up with hot pepper and tomatoes is that dish that excites you to cook because you know you're going to have so much fun and joy eating it after.

Dumplings are one of those thinks that are an integral part of Caribbean food. Kinda like the way plantain accompanies all foods. In Trinidad and Tobago, we only have one dumpling and that is boiled dumplings. In Jamaica, they have boiled dumplings and fry dumpling. Today we are going to look at boiled dumplings but not just regular, plain boiled dumplings, but the cornmeal version of this staple.

How do you like your plantains?

Are you a plantain lover like me? OMG, there's nothing like the perfect fried plantain. A simple side dish in a lot of Caribbean and African homes. I think I can eat a whole fried plantain on my own. And this option is no different. Normally, we simply peel and fry plantain and that is amazing. But sometimes you want to try a little different flavor and these spicy fried plantains are now an option.

Trinidad Chicken Puffs

There is nothing that reminds me about the joys of childhood more than thinking of chicken puffs. When I see a puff, I think of all of the birthday parties we attended and all of the games I played. Did I mention I was 150% a tomboy? In fact "play" was a nickname my aunt called me from an early age. I found any opportunity to be running, jumping, diving anywhere and 9 out of 10 times, I was the only girl in the group.

And on numerous occasions, these puffs saved my life. A staple at all family events, this light puff pastry (choux pastry) is usually stuffed with well-seasoned chicken or cheese or tuna. And are usually gobbled up in no time. Today I reminisce and share the recipe for my favourite of them all, chicken puffs.
