Scotch Bonnet Peppers

Scotch Bonnet Peppers

Scotch bonnet peppers are found mainly in the Caribbean islands and are often used in preparing Jamaican food and pepper sauces. Most Scotch bonnets have a heat rating of 100,000-350,000 Scoville heat units, which indicates the amount of capsaicin -- the chemical compound that makes spicy things spicy -- in a pepper. Just for comparison, most jalapeno peppers have a heat rating of 2,500-8,000. 960 1280

Escoveitch Fish

Escoveitch Fish

Escoveitch fish is a traditional Jamaican dish served for breakfast. It’s usually with a side of bammies, a type of fried cassava bread. Escoveitch fish is similar to ceviche, but the fish is fried instead of prepared raw. Escoveitch is a variation of the Spanish word “escabeche,” which is used to describe food that’s pickled. In case you didn’t know, pickling was a technique used to keep food from spoiling before refrigeration was invented. 960 1280

Curried Goat

This dish originated in India, but it is a popular party dish in Jamaica. At a big cultural party or dance -- like the Notting Hill Carnival -- an expert is usually brought in to cook it. The Jamaican twist on this dish is that it is usually made with a mild spice mix, whereas the original Indian dish is much spicier. Mutton is sometimes used instead of goat. 960 1280
