A Belize inspired Valentines Day menu is about as close as I will get to Belize.  Someday I would love to visit.  Belize is a country located on the northeastern coast of Central America that is known for the variety of cultures it includes like the Maya, British, Mestizo, Creole, Chinese, Lebanese, and Garifuna.

If you’re interested in more Belize recipes, I recommend the Flavors of Belize cookbook! Given the fact that Belize is located in Central America,  it only makes sense that many of their recipes have a Caribbean or tropical feel to them.  Many feature seafood although there are quite a few that use chicken and other meats as well.  I especially love the fact that so many recipes include tropical fruits.

Being from Vermont, tropical fruits are something I treat myself to whenever I can. I love that they are included in not only the dessert recipes but also in many of the main dish recipes as well.  Doesn’t coconut rice sound yummy to you? I know it sounds like something I’d love to enjoy. Will you be trying any of these recipes for Valentine’s Day?

  1. I never realized that Belize had so many interesting dishes!  The Garnaches look yummy.
  2. those all look delicious. We have made a coconut BLACK rice before but never with a white rice. Looks yummy!
  3. Tiffany Cruz says
    So many delicious looking dishes.
  4. I love how you paired all these dishes. Do take note that Escabeche is a lunch dish, for dinner I'd go with creole shrimp. ;)
