Christmas Menu: Caribbean Theme

danagrace | Dec 2, 2010 09:58 AM

Every year we do a different themed menu for Christmas Eve and Christmas Dinner. Last year we did New Orleans. This year we are doing the Caribbean. Would you all mind taking a look at our menu and giving us your suggestions? We would also like to make a rum cake for dessert. Most of the ones out there start with a box cake mix. Anyone have a tried and true scratch recipe?

Here are the menus-

Christmas Eve Appetizers:

Ginger Beer Cocktails
Red Stripe Beer
Fried Plantains w/ Garlic Sauce and a Cilantro Sauce
Salt Cod Fritters
Mini Jamaican Beef Patties
?????

Christmas Dinner:

Jerk Leg of Lamb (Grilled)
Fish in Escovitch
Coconut Lime Rice
Pigeon Peas
Sweet Plantain
????

Rum Cake

Thanks!
Dana
