    I took this appetizer to a party and it was gone in a flash.

    Just made yesterday for our Jamaican party - everyone LOVED it. IT was the first thing to go. Light and flavorful. I would DEFINITELY make this again.

    I've made this twice & both times I had to give the recipe out countless times. Every piece was gone. Super easy to make
