This spicy Caribbean stew is a meal unto itself. Just add some crusty bread or a green salad. As for drinks to pair it with, you could always go with a fruity rum cocktail or beer. If you want to have wine with dinner, look for a fruity Riesling, or an Alsatian Gewurztraminer. They’re full-bodied and fruity enough to help put out the fire from the spicy stew and taste great.
