With Lent just around the corner I find it fitting to have a meal like yam and smoke herring for lunch. This recipe is so simple it actually is a no brainer but then I’m always mindful that what is easy for me, with readily available ingredients in my kitchen, may not be so with you all.
This dish I class as a fast cook, together with other meals like provision and saltfish, dumpling and saltfish, and dumpling and smoke herring. Of course the list goes on based on what you have available in the kitchen to make these simple but hearty meals… I remember once going in the garden with my aunt and uncle and for lunch we had dumpling and caraili. I never knew dumpling and caraili tasted so good. The bitterness didn’t brother me at all.
So for your enjoyment here is yam and smoke herring; home cooked, hearty and simple; a true Caribbean dish. I know Cynthia and Chennette could attest to this!
1 lb yam
2 cloves garlic
1 small onion
1/2 lb smoke herring
1 sprig chive
4 leaves chadon beni
See how simple that was. I urge you to try it. See you next time. Bye!
