 As promised, here is the recipe for another Afro-Guyanese dish.  It is called Mettem or Metagee, and can be served with fried fish, or just on its own.

-cassava (yucca)
-sweet potato
-coconut milk
-green onion
-fish fillet of your choice
-green sauce (seasoning)
-5 stock cubes
-fish seasoning
-flour or corn meal
-ginger powder
-black pepper

1.) Peel ground provisions (eddo, cassava, sweet potato, plantain) and cut into large pieces

2.) Chop up vegetables (mince)

3.) Cut up fish into strips and tenderize with meat hammer, or cut slices into the strips

4.) Season fish with fish seasoning, green sauce, salt, black pepper and ginger powder

5.) Heat up a little oil in a large pot, and fry up all minced vegetables. Add salt, 1 tbsp of sugar, 5 cubes and stir around for 5-10 mins

6.) Add ground provisions

7) Add enough coconut milk to cover the provisions, stir and simmer the pot for 30-40 mins until soft.

8.) Coat fish in flour or cornmeal and pan fry fish until golden brown

9.) Serve Mettem in a deep plate and place fish on top.  Bon appetite!

OOH SHAZAMMM!! what the heck is an eddo!?

Eddoe (I think I misspelled it) is a ground provision commonly used in Creolese cuisine. It's kind of like potato/plantain but I haven't used it since then... apparently it's tough to cook. I can't wait to have a cooking day with you when I get back Jess! xox
