Pan Fried Cuban Sandwich

Recently I threw a few parties with "miniature" sandwiches and was attempting to find new unique ways to change up traditional classics like Ruben, Philly Cheesesteak, Grilled Cheese, Po-Boys, etc. I personally a good traditional Cuban sandwich, so I experimented a bit and got this recipe to work. My portion measurements may be slightly off, so don't get mad if my portions are slightly off (too much meet, not enough biscuits, etc.) -- posted by Melanie B.

Grilled Jerk Pork Tenderloin

I feel that the apple cider makes this Jerk marinade unique, and a bit untraditional. Being from the apple country of Virginia the apple cider was a natural. For added flavor, add apple or hickory wood chips soaked in water on top of the hot coals. You can begin grilling when the chips start smoking. Grilled pineapple goes well with this as a side dish. -- posted by Chef #1298498

Caribbean Foods Glossary

Ackee

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.

Jamaican Brown Stew Fish

There's a restaurant near here in South Florida that serves this dish, and they make it soooo good. It has a slightly sweet/tangy flavor that goes really well with the snapper. I decided to try making it myself, but after looking in Recipezaar, I couldn't find the sweet version. I finally found it somewhere else on the web and tweaked it to perfection. Serve with a little salad and rice and peas. For the rice and peas, I recommend recipe # 97745. Hope you like it. -- posted by Romi
