post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've marinated chicken in a caribbean-style citrus marinade and am looking for a side dish, since I'm having a bit of a block. Any ideas are appreciated!:thumb:

Thanks a lot for the reply. I've never heard of a pawpaw, perhaps the regionality of the plant (I'm pacific NW) is why, but I would love to have a recipe in the extreme chance that my co-op gets some in. I might go for the asparagus idea, since I have some homemade pesto in my freezer.

Long grain white rice mixed with wild rice. The wild "rice" takes a lot longer cooking, so start it way before the white rice. Can add some diced fried shallots to the mix, especially nice if you are making a gravy from the pan drippings to soak up all the flavours.

Mashed sweet potatoes mixed with some diced, fried, drained bacon.

Definitely with a salad, what Petals said :)

What are the ingredients of your marinade...Might be easier to pair a salad if we know wots init?

A spicy pineapple salsa comes to mind, but might clash. Something with coconut??

Just had a peek at my Levi roots book for you... To go with a lime, angustura and marmalade marinade, he reccommends a pineapple,avocado,orange and mint salad with a ginger dressing.
Recipe for dressing :- Juice of 1 lime, S&P, 2 tbs olive oil, 1/2 knob stem ginger chopped fine, 1 tbs ginger syrup
...Sounds great?

Maybe just a simple white rice with scallions.
