    This recipe is based on a traditional Caribbean favourite that is often made with red kidney beans, which are called peas in Jamaica — hence the name of the dish. Red capsicum and bacon elevate the flavour.

    A quick and tasty way to eat prawns or scallops. Serve with fluffy white rice and garnish with fresh coriander leaves. I use "Herbie's Spice" jerk seasoning for this dish and you can also use it as a rub or a marinade for any grilled or barbecued meat.

    If you can find good salt cold (baccala) you can make these delicious Jamaican breakfast fritters. These are also good served with a spicy dipping sauce.

    This is quick, really easy and even more tasty. My take on Matthew's jambalaya is inspired by a good friend who cooked us this dish and it's really, really yummy. I use mugs as measures, please note that this is not the US weights it's just a mug full of rice or veg - hope you get that!
