lf: easy, authentic jamaican recipes

wondering if:
1. there's anyone on rfd that knows how to cook authentic jamaican
2. they could share a recipe or two with me (and the rest of the rfd food forum)

if you can help me out, i'd appreciate any posts you can offer. the more fool-proof the recipe, the better. if there are specific ingredients that i might have trouble finding, please let me know.

i would love to be able to try my hand at cooking a jamaican dish.

any replies would be most appreciated, thanks in advance.

Well Ackee and Saltfish is probably one of the only "Authentic" Jamaican dishes out there.
Jerk is not Jamaican so the lets just clear that up.
It's Arawak Indian food which as you know the were the peaceful native West Indian Tribesmen unlike the Carib Indians who were Warlords.

I'll give it a few days on this one if no one responds with something i'll throw in a few.
