This dish gives a distinctly Asian inflection to the steamed fish and rice dishes typical to the Caribbean. Steaming is one of the most foolproof methods of cooking fish; not only does it keep the fish moist, any extra flavors you add go straight to the fish. Plus, it’s healthy.

There are few foods that make both young and old happy like pizza does. The combination of bread, tomatoes and cheese is so fundamental that virtually everyone likes it. This opulent take on pizza pairs a richly textured crust with salty slices of prosciutto and tender slabs of mozzarella. And this flatbread is not strictly for brunch — cut into small pieces, it also makes a great hors d’oeuvre at a cocktail party.

There's no more warming drink on a cold winter's day than hot chocolate spiked with rum. My version is spiced with tropical flavors, adding an island zing when the weather is frigid.

There’s no more warming drink on a cold winter’s day than hot chocolate spiked with rum. My version is spiced with tropical flavors, adding an island zing when the weather is frigid. Sweet and rich, it doubles as a dessert on its own, too.
