If you are planning an adult pirate themed party this Halloween, then here are some great suggestions for food and drinks to serve your buccaneers and lady pirates. There’s a certain image that a pirate brings to mind… they are portrayed as strong, sexy, and have a “don’t mess with me” kind of attitude – even pirate wenches exude that same toughness, there’s that “I’m not taking any of your nonsense” atmosphere about them. To go along with these pirate images, you should choose your food and drinks accordingly…
Buccaneers Jerk Chicken:
- 2 tsps ground allspice
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 tsp ginger
- 2 tsps thyme
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tblsp brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tsps ground black pepper
- 2 tblsps vegetable oil
- 5 cloves of garlic
- 2 cups of chopped onions
- 1 cup of lime juice
- 2 habanero peppers
- 1 large chicken (approx 5lbs), skin on, cut into 10 pieces…..
Combine everything except the chicken and the lime juice in a food processor and puree until it is smooth. Put the chicken and the lime juice into a mixing bowl and pour about 1/2 of the pureed jerk sauce over it, making sure to toss the chicken around to ensure that it is well coated in the sauce. Transfer it to a container and pour the rest of the jerk sauce on top of chicken. Then cover and put in the fridge for at least 4 hours. Then preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove the pieces of chicken out of the jerk marinade sauce and place them, skin side up, in an oven-proof casserole dish. Bake in the oven for about 45 to 55 minutes or until cooked through and the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced with a fork.
Cutlass Codfish Fritters:
- 1 lb of cooked codfish, shredded and washed in water and lime
- 1 tbsp cooking oil
- 1 tbsp of chopped onions
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 lb flour
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 litre milk
- 1 tbsp creole hot pepper sauce…
Combine all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Then slowly add the eggs, hot pepper sauce and milk. Add the cooked codfish. Now form the dough into 1 inch balls. Heat up the cooking oil in a frying pan and then spoon the balls into the frying pan and cook until golden brown – then remove and drain off well. You can serve with extra hot pepper sauce for dipping them into.
