4 fresh corn on the cob

1. Preparing: Wash and clean your corn very well. If you like, you can also cut it in half.

Homemade

Jerk Chicken 

this recipe serves 4 people.

Savory, smokey spicey - Jerk Chicken is probably the most common and popular chicken dish in Jamaica. You will find lots of vendors on the roadside behind big Jerk BBQ grills selling Jerk chicken with a slice of toast, ketchup and pepper sauce. Jerk chicken is basically the Caribbean version of a great BBQ marinade. It is so versatile and complex in flavour, however very easy to recreate at home. Follow my easy steps and recreate the best ever Jerk Chicken at home. 

 

Ingredients:

 

1 whole Chicken, spatchcock /Chicken thighs/ Wings (depending on your preference) 

4 tablespoons of fresh Jerk seasoning (for example Chippin Jerk seasoning)

1 tablespoon oil

Salt and pepper to taste 

A little fresh thyme

Scotch bonnet pepper to taste (optional) 

1. Preparing: Wash and clean your chicken. I personally like to wash it in vinegar and lime/lemon juice. Trim off all the access fat and spatchcock your chicken (check YouTube for great videos on how to do that!) Slice into the skin on the thighs and breast part. If you have thighs only, make sure you make 2 or 3 slices into the skin of the chicken as well. Place your Chicken in a deep dish.

2. The Jerk seasoning: The perfect jerk seasoning is a blend of different herbs and fresh seasonings like pimento berries, thyme, scallions, scotch bonnet pepper. Feel free to experiment if you like or use your favorite brand of Jerk seasoning. After 2 years of experimenting myself I have found my personal favorite “formula” for the perfect jerk marinade and it contains more than 19 fresh ingredients. I like a balance between spicy, sweet and smokey fragrant jerk seasoning.  When it comes to Its all personal preference. 

3. Seasoning: Add oil, salt, pepper and Jerk seasoning to your raw chicken. Make sure to massage the marinade well into your chicken. Get it into every corner of the meat and make sure to season the inside as well. Place it in your fridge and let it sit for a few hours or best overnight.

4. Cooking: Decide how you want to cook your Jerk. Grill it on a BBQ or bake it in the oven. In the oven it will take you about 45-60 minutes on 200 Celcius to cook through. Cover your chicken with tin foil for the first 30 minutes of baking so it can remain nice and moist. Take off the foil later on and bake it until it has a nice golden crust all over. You can put your chicken on the grill setting in the oven for 5 minutes when it is already finished cooking- that way you get a nice char all over. On the grill it will take you less time to cook through. Flip your chicken often and get a nice char all over. Finish off with some fresh thyme.

5. Tipp: Elevate your jerk chicken with a glaze! For example honey or tamarind is amazing with jerk. Brush it over your Chicken just before it is finished cooking so it caramelizes well on the crispy skin.

6. Serve with your favorite pepper sauce and enjoy!

Curry shrimp

this recipe serves 4 people.

Curry shrimp is a staple in the Caribbean cuisine There are different varieties all over the islands:  Curry duck, curry fish, curry chicken, curry fish, curry chickpeas(chana), curry potatoes (aloo) and many more. The curry tradition in the Caribbean cuisine was bought over by the Indian immigrants and is now loved and appreciated by many throughout the West Indies. Today I will teach you a very easy and beginner friendly version of a shrimp curry. Feel free to add or change certain ingredients to make it fit your personal preference and diet.

 

Ingredients:

 

300 g of fresh Shrimp

1 tablespoon of fresh Chippin green seasoning

1 tablespoon Coconut Oil

1 small sized onion, diced

3 cloves of garlic, chopped

A little fresh ginger, chopped

1 small bell pepper

A little fresh thyme

1 spring onion, chopped

½ can of coconut milk

1 tablespoon of your favorite Curry powder

Salt, pepper to taste

Scotch bonnet pepper to taste (optional)

1. Wash and clean your shrimps. Take out the vein and place the shrimps in a separate bowl. Season it with your green seasoning (for example Chippin green seasoning).Place it in your fridge and let it sit and marinate for about 30 minutes.

2. In your favorite pan, heat up some coconut oil and brown your shrimp. This took about a minute on each side. Take your shrimp out of the pan and set it aside on a separate plate.

3. The next step is to “burn” your curry. In the same pan, add your curry powder and fry it on a medium heat for about a minute. This way your curry will be very aromatic and you will also get the raw uncooked taste of the curry powder out.

4. Add your onions, garlic, ginger, scallion, scotch bonnet and fresh thyme and roast it all in the pan before you add back your shrimp. Make sure all your veggies and your shrimp are evenly coated with the curry paste.

5. Now its time to add your coconut milk to the pot. Leave the heat on medium and let it come to a simmer, while you add in your bell peppers and salt and pepper to taste. Let it all come together and simmer on a medium heat for about 3-5 minutes until the gravy has the consistency you like. I like mine very thick. It is all personal preference.

 Have fun with it and experiment with different vegetables and curry blends. There are no rules.  This dish is best served with white rice and fried plantain

6. Enjoy!

Creamy

Rasta Pasta

with Jerk Shrimp

this recipe serves 4 people.

 

This Pasta dish is my version on the most popular Caribbean Pasta dish: “Rasta Pasta”. Typically, this dish is dairy free and vegan. However, I decided to add my own personal style to this recipe with some jerk shrimp and a cheesy sauce. One thing all Rasta Pasta dishes have in common: Lots of flavour and colorful vegetables.

Feel free to add or change certain ingredients to make it fit your personal preference and diet. 

 

Ingredients: 

 

500 g of your favorite pasta

300 g of fresh Shrimp 

1 tablespoon of fresh Chippin Jerk seasoning

1 tablespoon Coconut Oil

1 medium sized onion, diced

3 cloves of garlic, chopped

3 small bell peppers in yellow, red, green

A little fresh thyme

3 spring onions, chopped 

1 teaspoon Chippin green seasoning 

½ can of coconut milk

 

1. Wash and clean your shrimps. Take out the vein and place the shrimps in a separate bowl. Season it with your favourite fresh jerk marinade (for example Chippin Jerk). Place it in your fridge and let it sit. 

2. Now it is time to cook your pasta. I like to use Penne for this dish but feel free to use whatever you like. Tagliatelle is also a great option. Cook your pasta al dente according to the instructions on the packet, drain off the water and set aside.

3.While your pasta is cooking, prepare your Shrimp: In a non-stick pan add some coconut oil and fry your shrimp on both sides on medium heat until they turn pink. This usually takes 1-2 minutes per side. Take your shrimp out of the pan and place it aside on a separate plate. 

4. Now into the same pan, add in your onions, garlic, bell peppers, scallions, 1 teaspoon of Chippin green seasoning and scotch bonnet (optional). Let it fry on medium heat and stir well. 

5. Add in your coconut milk and let it all simmer for a few minutes. If your sauce is too thick at this point, make sure to add some water. Add in some fresh Thyme, salt and pepper to taste. Gradually add in your cheese and stir it in as it melts. Your sauce will now become thick and super creamy. 

6. Add your Pasta and your shrimp into your sauce and stir it all well together.

7. Enjoy!

chow 

Vegan, this recipe serves 3 people.

 

 

Today’s recipe is about my favorite Trini snack, traditionally made with green mangoes or pineapple. Chow is well seasoned with garlic, chado beni, and hot pepper.

This popular savory dish is bringing together the sweet tanginess of the fruit with different sharp, spicy, and fragrant elements. This unusual combination of ingredients creates a flavourful explosion and is very easy to recreate! My advice: Be creative and experiment with different herbs and flavours in your chow. Don’t be afraid to try something new.

My recipe is just one of many chow versions you can create. 

Today I will give you a little breakdown of how I like to do my version!

 

Ingredients: 

 

1 Medium sized pineapple or 2 Mangoes 

1 tsp of Chippin Flavour green seasoning 

1 small onion, thin slices 

1 clove of garlic 

Pinch of salt 

Scotch bonnet pepper (optional)

2 oranges, freshly juiced

1 lime freshly juiced

 

 

1. Wash and prepare your pineapple/mango. Peel off the skin and cut it in cubes (pineapple) or slice it up in stripes (mango). Place your fruit in a separate bowl. 

2. Now it is time to season: Add your green seasoning, chopped garlic, scotch bonnet pepper, thinly sliced onions and salt. Mix in everything well.  

3. Juice your citrus fruits. I like to use a mix of fresh limes and oranges and add it to your bowl of seasoned pineapple/mango. 

4. Give it a final mix, cover your bowl and let your chow marinate in the fridge. The longer it marinates, the better it will taste! I like to leave mine overnight- but again it is all preference. 

5. Finally, enjoy!

Baigan

Choka 

Vegan, this recipe serves 3 people.

 

 

Today it is all about Choka. This popular dish is mainly spread throughout Guyana and Trinidad. It was originally brought over by Indian migrants at the end of the 19th century. Nowadays you will find this traditional Indian dish to be widely spread throughout the Caribbean society. It represents the complexity in the West Indian culture. What was introduced by an ethnic minority has now become a staple in the national cuisine. Choka is diverse, ital (vegan) and full of flavour.  

You can swap the Baigan (eggplant) in this recipe for fresh tomatoes for a tomato choka. It is mostly served with white rice or Roti. Here is a step by step guide on how to make your own version at home: 

 

Ingredients: 

 

2 Fresh eggplants

2 cloves garlic

1/2 onion

1 tbsp Chippinflavour Fresh Green Seasoning

1 tbsp olive oil

Freshly chopped scotch bonnet to taste

Black pepper and Salt to taste

 

 

1. Wash and prepare your vegetables.

2. Roast your eggplants. You can do it on your grill or even on the broiler setting in your oven. This will take about 5-10 minutes, depending on your heat setting. Make sure you keep an eye on it and rotate your eggplants regularly, so you have an even char all over. Roast your garlic and onion as well. The roasting processed is finished when you see a nice smokey char all over and your vegetables are soft. 

3. Scrape off the outer layer of your eggplant and remove the skin. Place the soft inside into a separate bowl.

4. Mash your roasted eggplant, onions and garlic together with a fork while it is still hot.

5. Now it is time to season.  Add your Chippin Flavour Fresh Green Seasoning and mix it in very well. The intense and fresh flavour of this seasoning blend compliments the smokey sweetness of the eggplant.  Add in olive oil, salt, pepper, and scotch bonnet to taste and mash it all together again.

6. Serve this dish warm with roti or rice and enjoy!
