Throughout the Caribbean one can find dishes similar to Oil Down. In Guyana, Mettagee quickly comes to mind. In Trinidad and Tobago, they make Oil Down too, the colour of their dish coming from the use of annatto seeds/achiote. In Jamaica, Run Down, a stew made of salted mackerel or fresh fish, and yams, cooked with fresh seasonings in lots of coconut milk, is served alongside dumplings and boiled breadfruit. Regardless of where you are in the region, these dishes are different yet similar; they are familiar but distinct, like us.
