Caribbean Plate: A Sushi Recipe From Nevis’ Montpelier Plantation

By

The Montpelier Plantation & Beach hotel in Nevis offers one of the finest dining experiences on the island.

It’s led by Chef Benjamin Voisin, a native of Le Mans, France who moved to Nevis in November 2011 and whose culinary travels have taken him to Colorado and Spain.

What’s wonderful about Nevis is the sheer diversity of cuisines — and that’s nowhere more true than at Montpelier, where you’ll find a delightful blend of French, Caribbean and international flavours.

Voisin was kind enough to share his inspired recipe for a smoked salmon roll for CJ readers:
