Whoever thought that mixing fruit and fish would be a good combination? Jamaica did, and it worked out perfectly. Salt fish pounded and mashed along with Ackee creates a mixture of flavors that are truly out of this world. Deep fry those mashed balls and you’ve got something to keep your taste buds preoccupied throughout the day.
This is essentially Christmas pudding. However, it tastes slightly different, and all for the better too. One bite of it is enough to make you moan in satisfaction (no, we don’t mean that sexually). It’s also somewhat of an Easter bun. Seriously, how the Jamaicans ever thought this one up is beyond us, but it really works.
It’s not the most common fruit, that’s for sure. However, once you’ve had a taste of it, you’ll be off in the supermarket looking for some. It’s even better when deep fried to perfection. This will surely fill your tummy up the more you eat it.
When you’ve got a dish made with goat meat, you know you’re in for a treat. It’s soft and easy to chew, even if you’ve cooked it beyond recommendation. When some sweet and spicy curry is added to the mix, it deserves more than a mere mention. Mix it with rice so you can have a truly hearty meal.
You might find the idea of eating oxtail somewhat intimidating. However, it’s a delicacy in Jamaica, and one that has earned its reputation deservingly. Put the stew on op of some rice and you’ve got a clear winner. Every bite leads to an experience that is beyond words.
The name sounds pretty one-note, but trust us— the taste is anything but. You’ve got flat paleo bread, which is already tasty in its own right. Dip it in coconut milk and fry it to gold brown satisfaction. Upon the first bite, you’ll realize that Jamaican food is a winner in every category.
