    The Caribbean is a large region, containing many diverse island nations. Most of the islands were once colonies of Spain, France, the Netherlands or Britain, and hence the influence of these countries' cuisines can be seen in many Carribean dishes. Additionally, influences and ingredients from African cuisine, especially West African cuisine, can be seen in many dishes, this being the region from which many of the slaves imported to work on the sugar plantations, came from. The British in particular also brought many indentured laborers from India to the Caribbean, especially to Trinidad and Tobago, and here the influence of Indian cuisine can be seen too.

    Some popular Caribbean recipes and dishes include:
    • Alcapurrias - A dish from Puerto Rico. It is made by placing meat or crab in a dough made from green bananas and taro root, and then frying.

    • Callaloo - A dish meat from leaf vegetables (the leaf used varies between different Caribbean islands), with okra, and coconut milk, simmered down to a thick soup or stew. Other ingredients are often added such as meat, crayfish (sometimes known as "Caribbean lobster") and chopped onions. Chili peppers, garlic and spices are used to flavor the dish.

    • Curried goat - Goat meat in a rich curry sauce.

    • Curry chicken and roti - Indian-style curried chicken, with Indian-style bread ("roti") - particularly popular in Trinidad and Tobago.

    • Jerk meat - Another dish from Jamaica, jerk meat is chicken flavored with a fiery mixture of spices which are together known as "Jamaican jerk spice". Ideally the meat is cooked on a charcoal grill, but it can be oven cooked when this is not possible. In Jamaica itself, the usual meats used are pork or goat. Among the Jamaican dispora overseas, jerk chicken is particularly popular.

    • Arroz con gandules - Another dish from Puerto Rico. It is rice with pigeon-peas and smoked ham, and is flavored with sofrito (a thick cooked sauce).

      Arroz con gandules

    • Mofongo - This popular dish from Puerto Rico is made from green plantains or cassava, which are fried with garlic, pork cracklings and olive oil. It is then mashed and served with meat or chicken soup.

    • Rice and peas - Rice cooked with coconut and mixed with beans (such as pigeon-peas or red kidney beans) or peas.

    • Salt fish and ackee - This is sometimes said to be the national of Jamaica, where it is actually most popular as a breakfast. The dish is prepared from salted cod, which is washed and rehydrated, and then sautéed together with boiled ackee (ackee is a type of fruit, originally from West Africa - it must be very carefully prepared, as if improperly prepared it can be poisonous). The dish also usually contains tomatoes and peppers, and is flavored with herbs and spices.
