Cuban cuisine utilises the fresh native seafood in neighbouring waters and fresh regional produce. This savoury squid and rice dish, known as arroz con calamares, requires alcaparrado – a Cuban mix of olives, capers and pimiento.
This simple recipe requires only a few ingredients but tastes divine. The herbs, garlic and oil highlight the flavoursome texture of the eggplant and linger pleasantly.
For the true taste of Cuban cuisine, try this fantastic dish. Tender, spicy chicken marinated in tangy juices served with a delicious fruity salsa is a mouth-watering combination.
