Ingredients

Chocolate Calypso Beans:
Wet Jerk Rub:
Crusted Fish:
Pickled Shallots and Jicama:
Guava and Carambola Salad:

Directions

For the chocolate calypso beans: Rinse the beans. Rehydrate the beans by soaking them overnight. Drain and rinse.

In a large stockpot, saute the onion, poblano peppers and garlic in the olive oil until translucent; do not let the garlic brown.

Heat the cumin, crushed red peppers, allspice and cinnamon in a small dry saute pan until toasted.

To the sauteed onion mixture, add the beans, toasted spices, chicken stock and brown ale. Raise the heat to high, bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.

Add the chocolate and simmer, stirring often, until the beans are tender, about 2 hours. When beans are tender, season with salt. Taste and adjust seasonings.

For the wet jerk rub: Blend the brown sugar, soy sauce, allspice, rum, thyme, cinnamon, nutmeg, garlic, green onion and habanero together in blender until smooth. Set aside.

For the crusted fish: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Peel and grate the plantains on box grater. Combine the plantains, lime juice, 4 tablespoons of the wet jerk rub and some salt in a bowl and mix to create the crust.

Season the fish with salt and top each piece with a layer of the jerk plantain crust. Heat the clarified butter in a large oven-proof saute pan over medium-high heat. Sear the fish crust-side down until the crust is caramelized, about 30 seconds, being careful not to burn. Flip the fish and transfer the pan to the oven. Bake until cooked through, about 7 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. Do not overcook!

For the pickled shallots and jicama: Place the shallots and jicama in a heat-proof bowl. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, vinegar and 1/2 cup water and bring to a boil. Pour over the shallots and jicama and let cool at room temperature. Set aside.

For the guava and carambola salad: Combine the guavas, carambola, cilantro, lime juice, olive oil and the pickled shallot and jicama mixture and season with salt to taste.

To serve: Top the chocolate calypso beans with the jerk plantain encrusted fish. Top with a portion of the salad mixture that will compliment size of fish.
