New Haven, Conn. (WTNH) – If you’re a fan of fried food, you’re going to love what’s being cooked up today at CT Style. Leticia Jarrett is the CEO/Owner of Lakay Cuisine, a food delivery service bringing Caribbean flavors to Connecticut. She joins CT Style Host Natasha Lubczenko in the studio kitchen where she’ll be making the food of the day, “Fritay” or fried food.
Letitia’s business was launched back in May of 2020, inspired by her Jamaican background, combined with Haitian influences from her family. This local entrepreneur knew she had to share the unique flavors of Caribbean cuisine with New England residents.
Today is Friday, and Leticia offers her customers “Fritay Fridays” which includes fried snapper fish (or any other kind of fish) or fried shrimp, or fried chicken, with plantains and salad.
The main seasoning for her marinade is called ibis, and it’s made up of vegetables, such as garlic, peppers, onions and scallions with other seasonings, and it’s ground up into a delicious paste. This is a common seasoning for many Caribbean foods, both Jamaican and Haitian.
