Lifestyle : Good ol' mackerel rundown
Tomorrow is Labour Day, and Jamaicans across the island will be literally putting in work to spruce up their homes and communities.
With all the energy that goes into painting homes, mixing cement and cutting grass, you're bound to work up a big appetite.
Afterwards, some 'big man' food will be required. Here is one of the many dishes you can use.
Grace Quick and Easy Mackerel Rundown
3 tablespoons Grace Coconut Oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 ounce ginger, peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon curry powder
6 whole pimento berries
1 small onion, chopped
1 stalk escallion, chopped
1 sprig thyme
2 cans Grace Mackerel in Coconut Sauce (Rundown)
1 tablespoon Grace Green Scotch Bonnet Hot Pepper Sauce
1/4 teaspoon Grace Caribbean Traditions Black Pepper (optional)
In a saucepan heat Grace Coconut Oil, add garlic, ginger and curry powder and stir for a minute or two to allow curry to 'burn'.
Add pimento berries and onion and cook until onion starts to wilt.
Add scallion, thyme and Grace Mackerel in Coconut Sauce (Rundown) and simmer for five minutes until sauce is reduced.
Add Grace Green Scotch Bonnet Hot Pepper Sauce.
Adjust flavour as desired with Grace Caribbean Traditions Black Pepper and serve with your favourite starch, for example, boiled green bananas, fried dumpling, boiled dumpling or turn cornmeal.
Preparation time five minutes, cooking time 10 minutes.
