Coconut Cream & Poached Cod

In true Jamaican style, 3 ingredients I just cannot live without are, chicken, fish and coconut, in any shape or form.  So, you can imagine, this combination for me is paradise.  I have prepared this dish for friends who hate fish and watched them lick the plate, converted, so deliciously moreish, there is no turning back after the first mouth-watering forkful – enjoy!

Caribbean Kiss Trifle

Chocolate sponge, rum, cream, chocolate, coconut liqueur, toasted coconut, mascarpone….  No calories? in your dreams!  This trifle sounds like it would take ages to make, but in truth it takes not long at all.

Pan Fried Salmon

If you are looking for a beautifully flavoured, simple but delicious dinner party plate this is it.  You can prepare your cous cous in advance as the flavours intensify the longer you leave it and the salmon is just divine, pan fried.  With a big tossed salad, white wine and friends, this is a meal with a little work and all the satisfaction.

Anytime Jamaican Lemon & Ginger Loaf

There is nothing more delicious then a fresh slice of this loaf with a wedge of beautiful Cheddar or a spoonful of warm Crème Anglaise.  Traditionally, my family used to have a very basic version of it at Easter, but I suppose there is no reason to restrict yourself to special occasions.  The warm, spicy cinnamon and nutmeg aroma filling the house, reminds me of my childhood, back home in London.
