Ceviche (also spelled "cerviche" and "seviche") is kind of a "Latin American sushi," raw fish "cooked" in fresh lime juice. Because of the high acid content of the ingredients, prepare this fish recipe only in a glass dish, never in a metal one.
In Jamaica, they call pimento allspice. You can find allspice berries in the spice section of your grocery store, but they are often less expensive bought in bulk at a natural foods store. If you can't find goat meat you can substitute lamb or mutton.
Don’t worry, I don’t require you to slaughter a goat for this dish. Substitute lamb for the best results, or you can use beef, chicken, or pork. This dish makes a lot of curry, but it freezes well. All of the spices can be found in Asian or Indian markets. Serve over rice with the chutney and the raita on the side.
For this recipe, use a good quality imported curry powder; the domestic curry powders just don't have the taste or the punch needed for this recipe. Serve this dish with rice and peas or fried plantains or cooked yams.
This Mongolian grill recipe is a lot of fun to serve a small party. The original version calls for the grilled goat to be dipped in a beaten egg before dipping in the spicy seasonings, but because of the danger of salmonella, I have eliminated that step. Using individual sets of tongs or forks, the guests grill their own goat on the hibachi placed in the center of the picnic table. The goat meat should be half-frozen before slicing so that you can slice it as thinly as possible.
Here is a classic Jamaican dish that is much beloved in that country. As usual, lamb may be substituted for the goat. Note the West Indian trait of using a massala without chile powder, and then adding chiles to the curry. The dish is traditionally served with white rice, mango chutney, and grated coconut.

Traditionally served at Easter time, cabrito (young goat or kid) is sometimes smoked in a pit in the ground, but this recipe is far easier. To find kid, ask an independent butcher or locate a goat ranch in your area. There really is no substitute except, of course, a young sheep.
Goat meat, which is not commonly eaten in the United States (except in the Southwest), appears in many West Indian recipes. The Trinis sometimes eat curried goat Jamaican-style, but this version with coconut is more customary.
According to Paul Sheehan Jr., owner of Coast Kitchen & Cannery Foods, "After considerable time spent on trial and error, and many additional pounds added, we finally settled on Recipe #17. It's actually one of the simplest recipes we came up with but is one of the best tasting." I've added a sauce, but the dish is also good served without it.
