Epis is the amazing Haitian marinade.  If you ever see a recipe that calls for Haitian marinade Epis is what they mean.  It is similar to Sofrito used in Hispanic Caribbean cooking.  It is used to flavor all types of meats, poultry, seafood, stews, rice and beans.  It taste’s really fresh and just makes any food it is used in pop.  I made it to marinade my Groits for the my food tour.

After alot of reading I discovered that Epis varies alot across regions.  Some add oil, some add vinegar, some use leeks, some don’t use chilli and others use alot more chilli.  This is my variation but it is worth experimenting a little to get the flavour balance that suits your palete.
