TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO – Welcome to Trinidad and Tobago and one of the things I was most excited to try when I was there were the Trinidad scorpion chilies – lab tested at 1,463,700 Scoville heat units – making it one of the hottest chili peppers in the world! The scorpion peppers are indigenous in Trinidad and Tobago and today we’re going to try them out.

Kerryann Sultan’s Pepper Farm in Cunupia – Our first stop on this ultra spicy food tour in Trinidad is Kerryann Sultan’s Pepper Farm, where they are responsible for growing some of the best scorpion peppers you’ll find. It was so cool to see the source and how they grow.
Bertie’s Pepper Sauce (https://www.instagram.com/bertiespeppersauce/) – Hot pepper sauce is one of the joys of eating food in Trinidad and Tobago and so it was amazing to see the process of one of the best hot pepper sauces in Trinidad.
Quan Kep’s Pork Shed (https://goo.gl/maps/6yNQMxoa1ziM8fwi8) – Next we’re heading over to Couva, Trinidad & Tobago, to Quan Kep’s Pork Shed, know for their crispy fried pork and Trinidadian Chinese dishes. The food was amazing, the crispy pork and the hot peppers – and the fried pork with the Moruga scorpion chili. Chinese food is yet another cultural representation of Trinidadian food.
Sylvie’s Roti Shop (https://goo.gl/maps/usqv9U57bXy2Ea467) – San Juan, Trinidad & Tobago – Finally to complete this extra spicy food tour we went to one of Zaaks favorite roti shops for rice and dal and accompanying dishes. And this is where I tasted the true power of the Trinidad scorpion – absolutely fire!!
