Maracas Bay … yet another post

Yet another post of Maracas Bay in Trinidad… although I didn’t have the camera, so I’m not responsible for the shots, just uploading them.

Making ah fish broff fresh…

One of the best things we have in Trinidad, is the “fish broff” or fish broth. Trinis consider soup to be a main dish, no dish comes after or before, it goes with the whole “one pot” theory. Being served at home is a lot different from being served at a restaurant, in fact I have never had fish broth at a restaurant and probably would never have it at one, since the premise of fish broth is light and spicy.

There are those who believe that a good soup is the perfect elixir for all illnesses. From the time they feel ill they feast on bowls of soups daily – varying the type of soup so they don’t get fed up. I love soup all the time, but nothing is better than going fishing with the boys, cleaning and seasoning the fish and then making a huge pot of fish broth.

There are a million recipes about how to make a trini fish broth… but I haven’t seen a post where it shows the guys going out to catch the fish….
