Cayman Islands cuisine reflects the Caribbean flavors and offers a variety of seafood and tropical dishes. One popular recipe from the Cayman Islands is Cayman-style Fish. Here’s a concise recipe:


  • 500 grams firm white fish fillets (such as snapper or mahi-mahi)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 scotch bonnet pepper, seeded and minced (optional, adjust to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. Rinse the fish fillets under cold water and pat them dry with paper towels. Season the fish with salt, pepper, and lime juice, and set aside to marinate for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, bell pepper, and minced garlic, and sauté until the vegetables become tender.
  4. Stir in the diced tomatoes and minced scotch bonnet pepper (if using), and cook for a few minutes until the tomatoes soften.
  5. Add the Worcestershire sauce and dried thyme to the skillet, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for another minute to allow the flavors to blend.
  6. Transfer the sautéed vegetables to a baking dish. Place the marinated fish fillets on top of the vegetables.
  7. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
  8. Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 5 minutes to lightly brown the top of the fish.
  9. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro, if desired, and serve the Cayman-style Fish hot with rice or a side of your choice.

Note: Cayman-style Fish is often served with traditional Caribbean sides such as rice and peas, fried plantains, or a fresh green salad. Adjust the level of spiciness by adding more or less scotch bonnet pepper according to your preference.
