How To Remove the Rawness From Meat or Fish

>> Friday, 3 December 2010

Have you ever eaten meat or fish and tasted a very rawish (like my new word), or almost blood like flavor? If the answer is yes this is probably because when the meat/fish was being prepared, time and care was not taken to remove this rawness.

Now for some people and some dishes this rawness is very much appreciated and liked, but when your cooking authentic Caribbean food, a rawness taste in the meat/fish is NOT tolerated.

Seriously... serving Caribbean meat/fish that has a raw taste, is like someone smacking you in the face!

So to avoid preparing raw tasting meat/fish Caribbean dishes, I'm going to share with you a little tip that will remove all traces of rawness from your meat/fish. Firstly remove the meat/ fish from its packaging, and then place in a large bowl filled half way with cold water. Then add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar, or 3 squirts of lemon juice. Then mix the meat/fish into the lemon or vinegar water mix (ensure all the meat/fish has been soaked in the water), then begin to clean you meat or fish as you normally would.

Once you have cleaned your meat or fish, add another 2 tablespoons of white vinegar, or 3 squirts of lemon juice. Then mix the meat/fish together, ensuring everything has been soaked with the lemon juice or vinegar. Wash the meat with cold water and then you will notice that your meat is clean, plump, odour less and now ready for you to season with those tropical Caribbean herbs enjoy.

An Easy Way to Cook Caribbean Style Fried Chicken

>> Tuesday, 16 November 2010

Tasty fried chicken Caribbean STYLE! ! !
Fried chicken everybody loves it weather it's KFC, Popeye's or from a local chicken and chip shop, fried chicken is a firm family favourite. So it's not surprising that many people think it's hard to recreate this tasty snack, but fret not because I'm going to share with you a really easy way, to create perfect Caribbean style fried chicken.

Ever notice how fast food establishments fry chicken in deep pans of oil, and then after a set period of time they remove the chicken and it's all ready to eat?

Well when your frying chicken at home it takes a bit more precision, to get tasty ready to eat fried chicken. As you have to ensure that you have fried the chicken evenly and long enough in the pan of oil, so that the inside of the chicken is fully cooked, with no red juices.

So when deep frying chicken how long you should fry your chicken for? When should you turn your chicken over? How can you ensure you get tender well cooked chicken every time?

Simple... season your chicken using various tropical Caribbean seasonings, and then quick fry the chicken in a large pan of oil (ensuring you turn the chicken over, once the side frying in the oil turns crisp brown).

Once both sides of the chicken are crisp brown, remove the chicken from the oil, and place in a large baking tray. Then place your chicken into the oven, and leave to bake on a medium heat for 1hr (ensuring you turn the chicken over after 30 mins of cooking).

Remove your chicken from the oven and it's ready to eat, no red juices or rawness just crispy succulent Caribbean style fried chicken ENJOY.
