Caribbean “cook-up”

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 2 english potatoes
  • 1/3 sliced onion
  • A pinch of oregano & basil
  • 1 diced tomato
  • Pinch of salt & black pepper
  • A dash of Bajan pepper sauce

In a small pot, set 1 and 1/2 cups of water to boil.

When the bubbles appear, add ingredients (except fish and pepper). After 7 minutes, add fish and let everything stew-down or “cook-up” until potatoes are medium-to-soft. Add sprinkle and splash of both peppers. Remove from heat, and set on a plate.

Enjoy!
