Potlicker: Spicy & Creamy Caribbean Prawns with Spinach
This is another recipe from the excellent cookbook Caribbean and African Cookery by Rosamund Grant, it’s one of two recipe books that I have seen and decided are actually fully worth my money. The other is the Collins Gem range condensed paperback version of Food for Free by Richard Mabey, both are pretty great for different reasons.
This is my third post about a Rosamund Grant recipe now! So you know they must be extremely good, and I should probably stop posting about them before I have too much of the book posted, removing the incentive to go out and buy it, which isn’t my intention.
