Paul Carmichael's great cake

"Great cake, also known in Barbados as black cake or rum cake, is a variation of British Christmas cake that's smashed with rum and falernum syrup," says Momofuku Seiobo chef Paul Carmichael. "This festive cake varies from household to household but they all have two things in common: tons of dried fruit and rum. It's a cake that should be started at least a month out so the fruit can marinate in the booze. Start this recipe up to five weeks ahead to macerate the fruit and baste the cake."

Jerk snapper with pineapple and lime


Jerk spice is traditionally made with Scotch bonnet chillies; substitute habaneros or small hot chillies. You want a good hit of chilli heat.

You'll need

4 snapper (about 600gm each), cleaned For drizzling: olive oil To serve: shaved fresh coconut   Jerk spice paste 6 habaneros or small red chillies, coarsely chopped 3 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped 2 spring onions, finely chopped Juice of 2 limes 2 tbsp brown sugar 1 tbsp allspice 2 tsp finely grated ginger 1 tsp finely chopped thyme   Pineapple-lime salad 1 small pineapple, peeled, cored and diced 1 jicama (see note), cut into matchsticks ½ Spanish onion, thinly sliced 1 cup coarsely chopped mint Juice of 2 juicy limes For drizzling: olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • Heat a barbecue or chargrill pan to high heat.
  • 02
  • For jerk spice paste, pound chillies and garlic to a paste with a mortar and pestle, then stir in remaining ingredients and 1 tsp sea salt flakes.
  • 03
  • Slash fish a few times each side, then rub all over with jerk spice paste. Drizzle with oil, then barbecue, turning carefully every few minutes, until fish has a nice crust and is cooked through (about 15 minutes). Transfer to serving plates and keep warm.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for pineapple-lime salad, combine ingredients in a bowl, season to taste, drizzle with olive oil, and serve scattered with coconut alongside fish.

Note Jicama, or yam bean, is available from Asian grocers. If it's unavailable, substitute kohlrabi.
