We are taking a Caribbean vacation on Food of the World this month. Our cooking group has brought us to the lovely island of Aruba.
Aruba was originally settled by Native Americans from Venezuela. It has been mostly under Dutch control since the 1600’s.
The cuisine of Aruba has some Dutch influence, but they also use Spanish spices and, of course, what is native and abundant in their area.
This Antillean Swordfish is rubbed with Pinenton Picante which is a Hot Spanish Paprika. Fish is a large part of the Aruban diet. Sweet Potatoes and Pineapple are also eaten often, so I made them part of this simple summery meal.
