A Little Bit of the Carribean

Thinking about Bob Marley or Sandals Resorts? I was, so I whipped up something with a quick reference to better days on the warm beach.

The Bananas
2 bananas sliced

Fry the bananas on medium heath until they're browned to how you like them. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over the top. (Note: They'll be oily, and they stick to a paper towel, so think of a better absorbent...maybe a slice of bread.)

The Chicken
6 chicken legs
2 limes
1/4 C brown sugar
1 red chile
1 TSP minced fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 onion, minced

Marinade the chicken in this stuff for 2 - 3 hours. Light up a grill to about 350, and cook them suckers, turning frequently, about 30 or 40 minutes. Let the juice run clear; no blood. Watch the direct flame- you don't want em burnt.

The Shrimp
12 Shrimp
1 C orange juice
1/4 C brown sugar
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/2 onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced

Marinade the shrimp for 30 minutes or so. Put them on a skewer and grill them next to your chicken for the last 10 minutes, turning frequently and basting with butter.

You can also make extra dipping sauce with the same marinade from your chicken (make it fresh, don't use your chicken marinade).
