This is a very typical Jamaican dish, and my personal favorite. This is a recipe given to me by my Trinidadian friend but it was modified to reduce the calorie count. I used fresh herbs and did not use the scotch bonnet pepper that is normally used in this dish and still it had the perfect amount of heat. Served with the traditional rice and peas and a side of cabbage (recipe included separately) It was slammin!!!
The smell of the different spices, herbs and coconut from the rice was so intoxicating that my 14 year old son came running down the stairs yelling, "mom, what is that delicious smell" What makes this so amazing is that he was in the middle of playing XBOX. Anyone with a teenage son knows how impossible it is to get them off once they are on.
