RECIPE: Jerk salmon with pineapple salsa
Turtle Bay in Preston has launched a brand new menu - the first big menu enhancement it has undertaken since the restaurant opened.
The new menu has been inspired by feedback from guests and is devoted to the Caribbean culture that Turtle Bay is all about.
It is a vibrant celebration of Turtle Bay’s signature flavours with fresh new twists, more accessible dietary options and a bigger choice of healthy lunchtime dishes.
There is also a wider range of vegan and vegetarian dishes and a greater gluten free choice.
As well as giving the food menu a overhaul, Turtle Bay have livened up the Caribbean cocktail list too.
To celebrate the new menu, Turtle Bay share a popular recipe.
As well as Turtle Bay’s famous jerk chicken, curried goat and rum cocktails, dishes like their Jerk Salmon are brimming with flavoUr as well as being a little lighter for a summer’s evening.
