Which part of the West Indies is this recipe from...? Honey? Soy sauce? Orange? Where are the chillies? Where's the onion, tomato, spices, etc? Strange recipe. Name needs changing - this is not West Indian at all.

Do you know what, I was thinking the exact same thing. I'm not even from the Indies (Nigerian) but I looked at the recipe and was like 'errr is this really West Indian food, I'm not so sure it is'. Maybe they meant this recipe is from the west of India but even then I would still be a bit suspicious lol!!

LOL! I was 'tinking' the same ting miself! My dad was Jamaican and I'm pretty sure he did not have one bottle of Soy sauce in his cupboard in all his 76 years! No wonder you can't buy West Indian take away food from supermarkets! You can get Italian, Chinese, etc, etc, but never West Indian, and you wan fi know why? 'Cuase no bugger care to know the ingredients except West Indian people themselves!
