Spice Level: 🌶️🌶️🌶️
This takes me back to the white sandy beaches along Montego Bay, travelling through the nearby islands we stopped literally at the side of the road. It was a bananda leaf roof hut with the aromatic aroma of BBQ coming fresh off the grill. Sweet, spicy and smokey this dish is packed with heat served with "rice & peas" and a tropical slaw for added sweetness and freshness.
