Trinidad Geera Chicken Neck Recipe

I can't imagine it's almost the end of Summer here in the US. I don't think I was even able to "Summer" properly. And it's almost over.

But before the sun sets, and the heat abates (well not in Florida), you must try this geera chicken neck recipe. This is the ideal cutters. This perfect hang out with friends (in Trinidad and Tobago we call that "lime") dish is a fully flavored geera (cumin) and curry combination.



Cutters are what we call finger foods in Trinidad and Tobago. Some are spicy or not so spicy. It's really a food that acts as a buffer for liquor consumption. Yes, it is. So they are easily ordered at rum shops, bars, taken along to beach limes, or just having some people at your house.

For me, geera chicken is the top dog in this food category. Well, people might actually say geera pork, but since I no longer really eat pork, chicken is my winner.

I love eating this chicken using bony parts (hence me using neck). Some like to do a mix of bony: neck, back sometimes even making geera gizzard. And then you have some doing pieces with more meat like breast and legs, most times though when using those parts the chicken is being eaten as a meal, say with rice.

It's been an exciting week with this sorrel BBQ sauce. Everyone wants to taste it. I have people coming to my house to get some to test on the grill. I think summer was the perfect time for me to finally get this recipe right.

I've been winging it these last few weeks. I got a load full of wings and wanted to try to make them all different ways with flavors that were a little less traditional.

It is summer time and the weather here in South Florida is heating up!!

I know grills are being dusted off, scraped down, washed down and dragged to the side of the house to be used every day. There is going to be a lot of burgers, hot dogs, and wings.

I know one thing we are going to be using in abundance is that barbecue sauce. Yesss. We gonna be slinging that bad boy on a lot of things.

We going to go with sweet, try some honey, use some plain ones. But today, I'm introducing you to a tangy beauty of a sorrel bbq sauce.

I ventured out of my comfort zone a bit.

I finally made my own mussels dish. I've always been wary of making my own mussels and scallops at home. I'm not sure why I have been apprehensive about it, but that fear is definitely over.

This was dribble worthy with a flavorful coconut milk gravy with just enough pepper to make me sniffle.

I was extremely excited when I opened up this month's Callaloo Box and saw that it was a Caribbean Chinese themed box. Yaaaaay

I have mentioned numerous times that Trinidad and Tobago is a multicultural country so as a result, we have a lot of different foods from these cultures that have been adapted to be "Trini".
