CEVICHE! ~ Costa Rican Style

CEVICHE! ~ Costa Rican Style by Amos Miller

My buddy, Ed, of Puerto Rican descent, spent his time in the Air Force in Central and South America. Ed's favorite dish: ceviche! He tells endless tales of trying ceviche, which is seafoods 'cooked' in nothing but citrus juice. Ed always said that the ceviche he would eat by the gallon, if he could get it, was that he had in Costa…

Cuban-style Steaks in Garlic-Lime Marinade

Cuban-style Steaks in Garlic-Lime Marinade by John Spottiswood

These steaks are a treat and a great way to make an inexpensive cut of meat memorable. You can use bottom round (best), top round, or a thin cut sirloin for this dish. The steaks should be cut about a 1/2 thick. Mine were a little thicker, so I pounded them with a mallet to thin them. In Cuban restaurants, this recipe is called…

Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker

Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

I've loved cuban black beans and rice ever since I lived in Weehawken, New Jersey and ate at the Unica Cafe. This recipe takes some short cuts and uses a rice cooker, but I still think the results are delicious. Try this under any caribbean grilled meat, fish or stew and you won't be disappointed!

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,…

Mojo-Cuban Citrus Garlic Sauce

Mojo-Cuban Citrus Garlic Sauce by Bob Vincent

This is an adaped from a recipe by Steven Raichlen. Mojo is a traditional sauce for Cuban pit-roasted pork and palomilla (a thin steak cut from the round and grilled). It is made with lots of garlic and a sour orange tropical fruit called naranjo agria, or sour orange. In my area sour orange is not available so I used orange and…

Honey and Sea Salt Plantains

Honey and Sea Salt Plantains by Sean Kervin

The humble plantain seems to be one of the most misunderstood fruits in the grocery aisle. Most people pass over these green bananas in favor of their more popular yellow cousins, yet they are wonderful to cook with. Treat them just like a potato and boil, fry, or mash them for a slightly unique experience. This recipe is very…

Grilled Pork Chops with Caribbean Wet Rub

Grilled Pork Chops with Caribbean Wet Rub by John Spottiswood

We served these pork chops over black beans and rice. It was a great combination. We took the wet rub from a recipe for pork tenderloin in Cooks Illustrated. I'm not sure it's powerful enough for a tenderloin unless it's butterflied, but it was wonderful on the pork chops. Normally we brine our pork chops before putting on the rub.…

Cayman Johnnycake

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. Johnnycakes are pretty easy to make too which sparks a big thumbs up from me. Thumbs up from Mrs. Herb Garden too who is currently…

Take a vacation from the ordinary marinated pork loin. This exciting blend of island flavors makes an extraordinary roast. This recipe used a rolled roast, composed of 2 boneless loins tied together. If a single loin roast is used, the cooking time will be about 25 minutes per pound. Heavy, resealable, plastic…

Cuban Inspired Applewood Pork Skewers

Cuban Inspired Applewood Pork Skewers by Robyn Medlin

Living in South Florida, Cuban inspiration abounds and I have one of my co-workers to thank for the idea behind these skewers. The pork shoulder meat is readily available in Latin supermarkets because it is traditionally used in the dish Masas de Cerdo Fritas (fried pork chunks). In addition to the meat selection, the cilantro, lime,…
