On one of our last days in Jamaica we ate at a small beach restaurant and I ate a dish they called steamed fish, it was delicious I promptly went over to the cook and asked how she cooked it. Its a simple recipe, I used fish seasoning from Jamaica but I am tempted to make my own as it was over salty to me. So lets taste the Caribbean :-)
- 5 fillets of flounder, turbot or sole any thin white fish will work
- 2 carrots chopped
- a few sprigs of fresh thyme
- 1/2 a red onion chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic chopped
- 4 small spring onion chopped
- one cup of water
- one tablespoon of butter
- one tablespoon of ketchup
- 2 tablespoon of fish seasoning (ingredients- salt, rice flour, pimento/ allspice, garlic, white pepper, black pepper, red coloring - I would try and get annatto as natural).
- sauté the garlic in the butter with the onion for 5 minutes, add the carrots, potatoes if desired and okra, add ketchup, thyme and seasoning with the water
- then add the raw fish so the stock covering it and allow it to simmer for 10-15 minutes until soft
- serve with rice, cous cous or a baked potato
Hope your all well, I have been a tad dizzy but its not serious have a little vertigo and should go soon, the kids are well joined a local pool and they start swim lessons today.
