Callaloo & Bitter Greens Salad with Smoked Fish

  • Remove from heat and let cool.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the bag of callaloo and bitter greens along with some of the pickled peppers.
  • Lightly toss the greens and peppers with the red palm oil vinaigrette and evenly divide the salad on plates.
  • Remove the trout from the bag, and with a fork, gently flake into bite sized pieces.
  • Garnish the salad with smoked trout flakes and toasted pepitas.

Grilled Short Ribs in Piri Piri with Awaze Roasted Carrots

  • Before the Cook-Along begins, make sure your oven is preheated to 400 degrees and that you’ve removed the short ribs from the fridge.
  • Slice the orange into relatively thin slices.
  • On a baking sheet, add the carrots and orange slices, tossing with 2 tbsp vegetable oil and seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer to the oven and roast until carrots are tender, about 30-40 minutes.
  • Make sure to toss the carrots throughout to ensure even browning.
  • Once the carrots are tender, remove from the oven and transfer to a serving platter.
  • Drizzle with awaze vinaigrette and garnish with the ayib and parsley.
  • About 20 minutes before the carrots are done, start on the short ribs.
  • Preheat a large cast-iron skillet or heavy-bottomed saute pan over medium-high heat.
  • Coat the marinated short ribs in ¼ cup of oil and transfer to the pan.
  • Cook on evenly colored on all sides and until the short ribs are medium-rare.
  • This should take about 15-20 minutes.
  • Once ready, transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes.

Oh my the whole meal was delicious, very easy to prepare as well.
Victoria R. - Coventry, CT
Got it for my daughter and her BF. They raved.
Paige T. - Washington, DC
The food was delivered on time and was appropriately packaged to maintain safety. More importantly, it was DELICIOUS! The pandemic cancelled our 10 year anniversary trip. However, since we couldn't go to Street Bird, bringing their Hot Honey Chicken and Cornbread Waffles to us was a treat!
Jessica W. - Williamsport, MD
Sent this to three different people. They loved it. FedEx actually delivered on the expected date

Food was excellent and safely packaged. Arrived on time. It was a gift and recipients were very pleased.
Andrea Z. - The Villages, FL
The chicken was good. Not great as I was expecting. My wife does not like dark meat and I never bothered to find out what was being sent and apparently you have no choice but to get it. So I liked it and she would not eat it. But I am sure this would be stunning if I were at the restaurant where it came from.
peter p. - Morrisville, VT
It was well packed and it was nice to be able to get food from a good restaurant beyond our neighborhood.

Arrived on time and was the perfect heat-up and eat meal for my friend going through chemotherapy.

Packaged great and reheated beautiful. The money sauce is amazing. Bottle and sell it!
Kim N. - Hamden, CT
It was such a unique mix of flavors, packaged with clear instructions. When we could not travel during Covid, it let us nonetheless experience a famous chef’s cooking—a lovely meal with several dishes!
Beverly M. - Holland, OH
Everything about Streetbird’s fried chicken and waffles is excellent. They don’t bother with the tasteless chicken breast, the chicken is all dark meat, where the flavor is. Each piece of chicken is prepped, all fat is removed and the breading is thin and crisp and perfectly seasoned. The waffles are amazing, crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The honey is warm, slightly seasoned, perfect for the chicken. Succotash accompanies the main dish, a lovely blend of Lima beans, tomatoes, corn and greens. I will definitely get chicken from Streetbird again, Goldbelly is a fun and delicious way to bring restaurants from across the country into your kitchen and bring a celebration to our locked-down tables.
Susan N. - Denver, CO
