Christmas is a beloved holiday in the tropical Jamaica even though there’s no snow. In fact, with the Caribbean being a very christian region, Christmas is the most celebrated holiday of the year! And it’s not a Jamaican Christmas until the entire family comes together and enjoys their Christmas dinner followed by a slice of rich chocolate cake with fruits. The responsibility of the baking this cake is given to the best baker/cook in the family.
Escovitch fish is a traditional Jamaican dish usually made with crispy red snapper fish, but you may choose any fish you like. The dish is traditionally served with fried bammy (traditional Jamaican cassava flatbread) or festival (Jamaican deep-fried bread). Rice works beautifully as well.
