Levi Root’s Jamaican Coconut-Baked Fish Parcels

Adapted from Grill it with Levi

The kids are feeling a bit toady after weeks of holiday eating and have decided to go on a keto/Atkins low-carb diet. These diets are vegetable/protein forward. Usually, I go with dishes where I can serve the starch on the side, for those who wish for more.

Karl’s Caribbean Ham Steak

Today, as I was thinking about making a ham steak, I was wondering what I could do that was new and different from my usual brown sugar, vinegar and clove glaze. I made a Caribbean salad last Sunday and I was thinking that a variation of that dressing might work well. Jan thought the using a whole Habanero was a bit too spicy, but go with your own tolerance.

Karl’s Jamaican Chicken Salad

I made Jamaican Jerk Chicken on Sunday and I have half a breast leftover. Checking out the Jamaican cook book, that Jan brought me back from England, I saw that it had a recipe for Caribbean coleslaw. If I put the chicken together with the coleslaw I could come up with the Jamaican equivalent of a Chinese Chicken salad. Of course, I view a cookbook recipe as a source of ideas and insparation, not a list of ingredients, so my salad is only a nod at the original recipe.

Karl’s Broiled Plantains

I am making Jamaican Chicken salad tonight. For a Chinese chicken salad I would have crunch noodles as the starch. That doesn’t sound very Caribbean, so I decided on broiled plantains instead.

Karl’s Caribbean Shrimp, Avocado and Mango Salad

Adapted from a Caribbean Pot recipe

I wanted a cooling salad to go with my spicy jerked chicken and this one sounded like a good one.   The mango does not fit into the Ketogenic diet, but Chris can give Myr his mango if he wishes, the rest should be OK for him. I replaced the original grapefruit with orange, because it is less sour and I prefer it.
