Ackee and Saltfish Recipe

On two separate occassions on the red carpet celebrities with Caribbean roots or relatives fondly expressed a love for Ackee and saltfish.  The beloved food is Jamaica’s national dish.

Since the 1700s people from the island of Newfoundland brought dried and salted cod (salt cod) for the Jamaicans in order to trade for Rum. Salt cod is now one of the main ingredients for ackee and saltfish.

To prepare the dish, salt cod is sautéed with boiled ackee, onions, Scotch Bonnet peppers, tomatoes, and spices, such as black pepper and pimiento. It can be garnished with crisp bacon and fresh tomatoes, and is usually served at breakfast alongside roast breadfruit, hard dough bread, or boiled green bananas.-(Wikipedia)  This recipe is a bit Americanized.  If you want to share your recipe contact us.
