Trinidadian Crab and Callaloo

Who doesn’t love seafood? It’s a popular choice for romantic date nights, casual family dinners, and Sunday brunches. Many types of seafood fit in just as well in elegant restaurants as they do in beach-side no-shoes-required lunch stops. We put together some spectacular seafood dishes from around the Caribbean which are perfect for any occasion, so dive in! No pun intended 😉

1. Trinidadian Crab and Callaloo

Juicy, tender crab meat is simmered with callaloo (dasheen) leaves in a creamy and flavorful coconut sauce to make this popular Trinidadian dish. The distinctive sauce has coconut milk at its base, with a robust blend of onion, okra, spices, and hot pepper. Crab and Callaloo goes well with rice but may be paired with just about any other Trinidadian side dishes. Try this authentic Crab and Callaloo recipe.

2. Barbadian Curry Crab

Succulent crab, creamy and slightly sweet coconut milk, and plenty of spice go into making delicious Barbadian curry crab. This traditional dish is perfect for those who love coconut, with triple the coconut ingredients – there’s coconut milk, toasted coconut flakes, and desiccated (dried and grated) coconut. Coriander, cumin, and whole peppercorns are freshly toasted and ground in this recipe for maximum flavor, but if you’re pressed for time you can get away with using pre-ground spices.
