930. Can’t forget Pika!

Sprinkle or drizzle pika on your steak, chicken or fish, funchi, french fries and fried prawns (krupuk) No criollo meal is complete without pika di sibojo (pickled onions)!

Ingredients for 2 cups of pika:

1 large red onion, thinly chopped (yields 1 1/2 cups)

1 Scotch bonnet pepper, Caribbean red peppers (a variation of the chilly pepper) thinly chopped (keep tiny pits for a spicier kick)

1 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar

4 teaspoons of salt

Mix onions, pepper, vinegar, and salt in a large sealed container and really give the mixture a good shake. Pickle your pika for a few days, then enjoy! This Pika will last you a few months.

Special thanks to MeetCuracao.com for this awesome photo and Pika recipe
