Caribbean Trading Company was founded in 1998 in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico - and they will deliver the Caribbean right to your doorstep within 48 hours of ordering in the online store. 

When visiting Puerto Rico, stop by the company store right at the base of the El Yunque Caribbean National Forest. Or if sailing through the islands, head to the store on Palomino Island, the private Island of the El Conquistador resort.

I marinated chicken wings overnight with Caribbean Trading all natural "Spiced Rum Grill", and then deep fried. This spice contains garlic salt, brown sugar, butter granules, rum & paprika - and the crispy wings had a delicious buttery rum flavor. I can see this particular spice also working well with ribs, shrimp and pork. 

Head over to the Caribbean Trading Company site to see all they have to offer, and check out their Facebook page for info on how to enter the giveaway.

  1. Thanks for stopping by Anissa - the updated info on how to enter is now on the Facebook page -

  2. What a great contest! I wonder which of the Caribbean Trading Company's seasonings would go best with Lionfish...

  3. Hey Nancy! Limin Times Seafood Seasoning, Lively Up Lime Jerk Seasoning, Sweet Orange Habanero Seasoning and the Spiced Rum Grill Seasoning should also work well - used it on chicken, and it was fabulous - gives a buttery rum flavor.

  4. Looks great Linda! I will definitely share!
