Dutch West Indies Chicken Kebabs - Boka Dushi

Dutch West Indies Chicken Kebabs - Boka Dushi by John Spottiswood

This dish offers an amazing collage of flavors blending Indonesian, Portuguese, Spanish and West African flavors. Personally, I prefer the marinade and dipping sauce on these kebabs to traditional Indonesian satay. The heavy sweetness of the Indonesian peanut sauce is replaced by a tangy, spicy and slightly sweet mixture of peanuts,…

Cayman Johnnycake by Parsley Sage

An old staple recipe in Cayman is the johnnycake. Oh man, they're good. They're also mix-and-matchable. You can go savory or sweet by serving it with something like garlic butter or even honey.

Caribbean Colombo Roasted Pork

Caribbean Colombo Roasted Pork by Rosemarie

Like the islands themselves, this wonderful pork dish lingers a bit in the oven, giving you plenty of time to sit back, relax and listen to the sounds of steel drum music. Now would be the perfect time to whip up a batch of tropical drinks, close your eyes and imagine far away places.

Mojo Chicken Breast

Mojo Chicken Breast by Bob Vincent

This is a quick and tasty grilled chicken dish. The use of Cuban Mojo sauce perks up a boneless skinless chick breast. Use whatever spices you like to season the chicken before grilling. I chose a combination of Pasilla pepper, cumin, garlic pepper and salt. I served the chicken with a strawberry jicama salsa, baked plantains,…

They love papayas! If they could eat it in pie, they…
