The ingredients of this specialty from Russia are similar to the traditional Mexican pico de gallo salsa with the exception that celery replaces tomatoes and dill is added. Georgians spread it thickly onto a piece of lavash (Georgian bread) and wolf it down no matter how many chiles are added to it. Please note that this recipe requires advance preparation, as the adzhiga tastes better when it's served 1 to 3 days after making.
Island legend holds that the name of this sauce is a corruption of “Limes Ashore!”, the phrase called out by British sailors who found limes growing on the Virgin Islands. The limes, originally planted by the Spanish, would save them from scurvy. I guess that the bird peppers would save them from bland food. Add this sauce to seafood chowders or grilled fish. Note: This recipes requires advance preparation.
This year we used about a pound of LC Cayenne pods to cook up a sweet and spicy Thai sauce. Unlike “Louisiana Style” hot sauce, this one is thick, almost like ketchup, and is a lot less vinegary. It is great with grilled shrimp, over rice, for Asian cooking, and even as a dip.

These spicy kebabs can be found on the island of St. Croix, as well as many other islands, where fruits abound. Because of the abundance of tropical fruits, the combination of meat and fruit is not that unusual, especially with the addition of a Caribbean habanero hot sauce or the peppers themselves. Serve the kebabs with a rice dish and a cool-down salad. Note: This recipe requires advance preparation. From the article Mango Madness!
To preserve the distinctive flavor of the habaneros, don't cook them with the sauce but add them afterwards. This sauce will keep for weeks in the refrigerator. Use it to spice up eggs, sandwiches, soups, and seafood. This was the original, classic habanero sauce that has been imitated in commercial products countless times.

Here is a tasty option for cooking shark, or, for that matter, any firm fish that is big enough to have steaks cut from it, such as swordfish. We prefer to grill over hardwood rather than charcoal briquets, and two of the best woods to use are pecan and hickory. Mesquite can be substituted, but it imparts a strong flavor to the fish. Dave collected this recipe in Trinidad, where a dish called Shark and Bake is a specialty. Serve with conch chowder, curried cauliflower, potatoes, peas, and a fruit chutney.
