    Default "Traditional" Jamaican Meal

    If you wanted to fix a "traditional" Jamaican meal what would you fix? I am sure it would include Jerk Chicken/Pork/Fish but what else is native to Jamaica?

    Baked Yam?

    Salfish and Ackee
    Rice and Peas

    Proper Jerk pork - barbecued over pimento wood

    My wife wanted Jerk for her birthday, so, I made Jerk Shrimp, Jamaican Meat Patties, Jerk Chicken w/Rolls, Rice and Peas, Callaloo, Sweet Potato Chips with Jalapino/Grilled Pumpkin Dip, Red Stripe, Dark and Stormies and Rum Punch. It was work but well worth it. 38 days 'til Rum Cream All I want...

    Curried goat is also a traditional and special Holiday meal in Jamaica.

    Rice and Peas, Jerk Chicken or Brown Stewed Chicken, Fried Plaintains, Steamed or Sauteed Pak Choy (substitute spinach), and roasted breadfruit. That's a "traditional" Jamaican style meal!!

    We are going to be at CSA in 30 days... Where can we get some traditional food off the resort? Best of the west?

    Default Mmmm, goat!

    The best meal I ever had wasn't in a fancy restaurant but in a little open air shack in Playa del Carmen back in the 80's before the streets were even paved. Roast leg of goat. i've never been able to find it again.

    My daughter-in-law has a pet goat on her farm. I always threaten to cook it up.

    I'd love to find goat on the menu when we arrive. I'm also looking forward to saltfish and ackee.

    I think you mean Curry Goat ;-)

    (Curried Goat isn't too far off the mark - God help you if you refer to it as Goat Curry!)

    Check a Caribbean store or sometimes even a gourmet butcher will carry goat. You can also substitute lamb for the goat in the curried goat in a pinch.

    Just a quick message for Co. Juli or other Denver area Coupleholics. There is a restaurant down in LoDo called 8 Rivers that has authentic Jamaican cuisine. Very good. Its on Blake St. across the st. from the Rio Grand.

    Go to your local butcher shop and they should be able to get it for you. We live in MN and our local butcher shop and Festival Foods said they could get for us. My husband really enjoys curried goat when we are in JA and wants to attempt making it here at home someday. Maybe wait awhile now, cause in 42 days we can have the real thing in JA!!
    Have a Happy Day!
