It’s the weekend!! I can’t help myself. Will be treating my palate to a few of Jamaica’s favorite dishes. Already, my taste buds are salivating for that slightly salty and delectable dish of pickled mackerel.
Will be serving same with wholesome slices of roasted breadfruit. Breadfruit is an excellent substitute for rice or bread. Roasted breadfruit in an oven for approximately 50 to 60 minutes at 460 degrees fahrenheit.
For me, I can’t indulge in pickled mackerel and roasted breadfruit without sweet and creamy sides. Therefore, I will be having sides of fried plantain and of course, nature’s butter (avocado). Can’t omit my greens. There is definitely going be steamed callaloo (Jamaican spinach). I can’t wait to dig in!
I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food.
Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds.
I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones.
I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food.
Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
