The Pitons

 

It was here that we added to our cookbook a new snack. Yes you can try this at home.

It is now called "Captain Rick's Roasted Coconut" - has a ring to it don't you think.

Take the meat from a coconut and slice it into strips about 1/8" thick and 1" long, sprinkle with salt and place in a hot covered fry pan. No need to add any oil as the coconut has its own.  Roast them until the edges turn brown, add more salt and serve hot or cold.  Serve on a portion of banana leaf (optional).
