Tip of Stefano:

Jamaican cuisine, sweet and spicy. Taste the Caribbean ambience with this delicious brochette.

The Jamaican kitchen is a melting pot of flavors, but absolutely unique in its kind. With many European and African influences, Jamaica has developed its own taste over the years.

A characteristic feature of the Jamaican dishes is the use of Jamaican fruits, such as bananas, avocado, mango and pineapple. Jamaican food is often very spicy, marinades contain many spices, all-in combination with the sweet touch of the fruit or sugar which are used to create some unique combinations.

Allspice has always been a key player in the Jamaican kitchen. It is also called Jamaican pepper. It smells a bit like a mix of nutmeg, clove and cinnamon, but it is quite peppery and has a sharp taste. Jamaican food wouldn’t be Jamaican food without allspice.

In this recipe for Jamaican brochette with seitan, you will experience the Jamaican taste. There’s the allspice of course, but the rum and lime juice will also tune you in the Jamaican ambience. The sweetness of the coconut blossom sugar gives it a unique taste. A treat for warm summer evenings!

What fans say about Bertyn

Miki Duerinck & Kristin Leybaert

cooks of the vegetarian cookery studio and authors of 4 vegetarian cooking books, Ghent

“Even if we never manage to convert the world to the vast majority of meat replacements, one product remains decidedly hopeful: the Manitoba wheat and soy sauce-based, traditionally produced seitan manufactured by Bertyn. It brings together the two qualities required if you justifiably want to call a product a ‘meat replacement’: it is pure and natural and very tasty. It is on sale in health food shops, vacuum packed as seitan steak, seitan supreme or in ‘block form’. It is easy to prepare: the seitan is baked, steamed or cooked in a flash because it never requires lengthy cooking times. So from now on no restaurant has a valid excuse for not putting such a vegetarian dish on the menu.”
