Callaloo Box- Trinbago Seafood Themed Edition (Giveaway)

It's so hard to believe that we are already well into the month of March. The year is flying by already and spring is in the air. I am excited about getting to do more outdoor cooking since the weather is warming up. Just in time, we received the March Trinbago seafood box from one of our favorite subscription box services, Callaloo Box.

Callaloo Box is a monthly subscription box service that offers tastes from the Caribbean including sauces, seasonings, marinades and more. This is perfect if you don't have access to purchase these types of products. I've talked about it before and believe me when I say, they are more expensive on Amazon, so don't be afraid of the cost. I've done the math for myself, and Callaloo Box is a great value.

So what's in this month's Callaloo Box?

Inside the box:

Constance Estate Garlic Infused Coconut Oil, Chief Lime Pepper, Karibbean Flavours Green Seasoning with lime for Fish & Seafood, Chief Tamarind Chutney, Karibbean Flavours Dried Sea Moss, and Karibbean Flavours Fish & Chief Fish Shaker Seasonings.

These fish seasoning packets are perfect to use to marinate fish, or to use while cooking. They are very robust so a little goes a long way! For extra flavor, try adding a little bit of green seasoning.

One of my favorite types of sauces is tamarind sauce. It goes so well with fried fish, seafood fritters or pholourie. It has the perfect balance of sweet, tart, and spicy flavors. The Chief Lime Pepper is perfect if you want some added tangy, fiery-heat to dishes. I like having mine with cook-up rice and grilled chicken. You can even add some into your dishes as they cook. Let me tell you though, it's HOT HOT HOT!



Constance Estate Garlic Infused Coconut Oil is ideal for sauteing vegetables, or in any dish you want a good garlicky punch. It is very strong and absolutely delicious! A couple tips: To get your coconut oil in liquid form, soak the bottle in a tall container with hot tap water until it melts. You can even pour the coconut oil in a container to scoop out as needed, which is what I did. 

If you love lime, this green seasoning is for you. Be careful not to use too much, because it can be overpowering. I feel like this would be better on chicken than fish. 

Last, the dried seamoss or Irish moss is something I have not tried yet. You can use it to make a sweet beverage with (directions on package). I did some research and it is believed to be good for regulating your thyroid and to help with joint pain. I'm definitely going to have to experiment with it!
