Seafood Pepperpot Soup @ Rum House
Pepperpot, a specialty of the Caribbean and most particularly Jamaica, used to be so common in America that Campbell’s even canned it. The version they serve at the Rum House is just about the only one left. And don’t recall what you may have had under that name. This is different, with a French bouillabaisse sort of touch. Mussels, mahi-mahi, shrimp, scallops and squid make up the generous protein part of the recipe. They also make it with more pepper than is classic, but none of us have much of a problem with that, right?
