Shrimp Bites Wrapped in Greens

Isabel Cruz's Spicy "Shoestring" Party Menu for a Sultry Late-Summer Night - CBS Morning Show, 09/01/2007. The San Diego-based chef likes to marry the tastes of Latin American cooking she grew up with to the Pacific Rim tastes she's come to know as a Californian. But most of all, Cruz likes to keep her cooking clean, fresh, flavorful and healthy - she likes to go for flavors that pop and offer contrast to one another. She has 5 restaurants on the West Coast, from Portland, Ore. down to San Diego, Ca:). She has also published a cookbook "Isabel's Cantina."Growing-up, Isabel's friends were Puerto Rican, Cuban, Peruvian, and she also spent time with her Asian friends learning Japanese, Chinese and Korean cuisine. Thus, was born her fusion of different flavors. "This is a Thai appetizer of shrimp wrapped with coconut, peanuts, and chiles in a leaf. She likes to use raw collard greens as wrappers for these spicy little snacks, which she drizzles with a little guava sauce to complete the hot-sweet Thai flavors while also bringing these bites further into the Latin realm. Prepare these ingredients in advance, and then assemble these at the last minute." She was given a $60 budget to create a dinner menu for 6 people - thus: Chef on a Shoesting. -- posted by Manami

Caribbean Foods Glossary


A handful of islands grow ackee as an ornamental tree, but only Jamaica looks at it as a tree that bears edible fruit. The ackee fruit is bright red. When ripe it bursts open to reveal three large black seeds and bright yellow flesh that is popular as a breakfast food throughout Jamaica. Ackee's scientific name, blighia sapida, comes from Captain Bligh, who introduced the plant to Jamaica from West Africa. Ackee is poisonous if eaten before it is fully mature and because of its toxicity, it is subject to import restrictions and may be hard to obtain in some countries. Never open an ackee pod; it will open itself when it ceases to be deadly. Ackee is sold canned in West Indian markets.

Allspice, Pimienta
Dark-brown berry, similar in size to juniper, that combines the flavors of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg.
