Ackee and Saltfish is a traditional vegitarian Jamaican meal, although you can add crispy bacon
For this recipe today we are using locally sourced bacon bits.
Soak the saltfish overnight in cold water.
Place saltfish in a pan of cold water and bring to the boil, you may have to repeat this process twice to remove the excess salt. Remove saltfish from heat, empty water and leave to cool.
Shred saltfish with fingers into small pieces. Heat up frying pan with rapeseed oil and chilli virgin oil then place bacon bits into heated pan and fry until the bacon is golden.
Add the saltfish to bacon onions, garlic, herbs, coarse black pepper and raw sliced tomatoes, fry until lightly browned.
Now add the tinned ackee, lightly fold in and simmer for around 10mins. Serve on a bed of basmati rice.
This recipe can also be done without pork.
