Much to my disappointment, NOTHING is
locally grown in Guam.
That's a big BOO on my part...
but, alas, that doesn't mean there are
no good eats!
The locals love a good BBQ!
Not a BBQ-sauce-on-meat type either.
I have heard that they will put anything on a grill.
Oh, yum to the umpth degree, baby!
Every Wednesday night in
there is a tent city of BBQ's
and I intend to take full advantage of the local hospitality!
I'll take some pics and show you what I find,
but in the mean time,
I'll share my snack with you!!
We tried this at a friends' house this weekend...
it's just rice, red onion and Annato spice
which is really the coloring and flavoring left over from soaking
Achiote seeds. You just throw everything in a rice cooker and
cook it as you would normal rice!
I don't know yet where you get the seeds....
I DO know that I can get the spice at the commisary!
They add a "sauce" called Finadene (pronounced fin-a-dinny)
to the rice that consists of soy sauce, white vinegar,
onion, jalapeno (chopped), lemon juice and green onion.
You just throw everything into a bowl and stir!
Bon Apetite! ~K
