    These chicken wings are delicious and perfect as a starter or for a picnic. Colombo is a Caribbean curry powder, very typical of Martinique and Guadeloupe, which can be found online or in Caribbean markets.

    This is a traditional Bahamian recipe made with conch, a wonderful but hard-to-find Caribbean treat. These fritters are great as an starter, party nibble or as a very tasty canapé to accompany your favourite tropical drink!

    A delicous fish appetiser, which is simple to make. They are crispy, well-flavoured and go well with a spicy dipping sauce.

    This mango, pineapple and papaya salsa gets its kick from green chilli and is finished off with fresh mint. A lovely addition to a jerk chicken barbecue, or simply serve on its own with tortilla chips.

    These refreshing prawn bites are a welcome change from heavy canapes. Skewer these spicy marinated prawns and serve on a platter. Or they are just as good tossed with greens for a delicious salad.

    This is my favourite street food. You can find it at every expresso corner in the city - a real Cuban classic! This time of year, it is perfect for summer picnics or the beach!

    Popular in many Latin American countries, fried green plantains make an utterly delicious side dish or snack. Known by many names, such as patacones or tostones, green plantains are sliced and fried till golden, for a crispy outside and tender interior.
