🇯🇲 Ackee & salt fish served with cauliflower rice
I used to be first launched to this dish by my buddy amorysherri She made a batch and introduced me slightly container at work and I used to be like WOW! 🥰🌶️
Egg is likely one of the issues I miss essentially the most whereas on the elimination weight loss program. Now ackee (a fruit) does not really style like eggs but it surely appears like scrambled eggs (whats up placebo).. So right here I’m making an attempt this dish after a go to to caribbean.nook in Kensington Market.
What you will want:
1 can ackee, drained
Salt cod (as a lot / little as you want, I used the entire bag lol)
1 pink bell pepper, diced
2 scotch bonnet (if u prefer it spicy)
1 small tomato diced (I solely had cherry tomatoes)
Three garlic, minced
1 inexperienced onion, chopped
half onion, diced
2 tbsp recent thyme
1. Soak and drain the salt cod in a single day in accordance with the package deal directions then boil ~30 to 40 minutes and drain and flake.
2. Warmth some impartial oil over medium on a pan and add in onion, pink pepper, tomato, scotch bonnet, garlic, and inexperienced onion and fry about Four minutes.
3. I added ackee right here however I like to recommend including it on the finish as an alternative as it’s fairly delicate and mine broke up fairly a bit 😭. As an alternative I recommend including the saltfish flakes and thyme now for an additional Four to five minutes.
4. Nowwww add ackee to the pan till heated by way of – one other 2 to three minutes?
I served it with cauliflower rice however I feel historically you’d eat this with avocado / plaintains! I’m under no circumstances properly versed in Jamaican delicacies however this tasted just like what I bear in mind!
FYI in case you’ve by no means had ackee earlier than it has a clean, buttery texture and the dish itself is wealthy with umami from the saltfish and good and spicy from the scotch bonnets. Give it a attempt!
