this recipe definitely tastes of authentic ackee and saltfish. my only addition was to add a little dried thyme to the ackee, but other than that, this recipe is very tasty.
I too grew up on this as my mother is Jamaican as well. Thanks for posting. I added bacon, as that is the way my mother makes it and I am accustomed to eating it that way. Other than thatâ€¦ I did not change a thing. Delicious!!
I really enjoyed this. It's quite comforting, and you're right that the salt cod isn't salty at all. I served mine over johnny cakes for dinner, and we loved it.
*Believe me....you simply haven't lived,* until you've eaten Ackee & Saltfish. I haven't tired your particular recipe, but I practically grew up on the stuff (minus the tomatoes). I haven't had it in such a long time. Maybe this June, when I go back to Ontario for our daughter's wedding. There are lots of west indian markets there. I don't know of any here in Nova Scotia. I just know I'll be dreaming about this tonight. :yummy:
