Callaloo and salt fish.


A Jamaican dish that’s good for bushy meals as salt fish does not need to be kept chilled and it’s a break/alternative from meat. If you cannot get fresh or tinned callaloo spinach is basically the same, cabbage, nettles or other green leaf edibles will work fine in place of the callaloo.


Can be served with rice for a full meal or on its own for a hot snack.


Callaloo and salt fish for 1-2:


For this you will need large handful of salt fish, a tin of callaloo, 1 x onion, 1 x red pepper, half a tea spoon of both chopped garlic and ginger.
Soak your salt fish for a few hours, the longer the better changing the water 3 or so times. (shortest time ive soaked it before cooking was about an hour and it was fine)
Fry the salt fish with chopped onion, red pepper, some garlic and ginger in some oil or butter when the fish starts to flake add the callaloo/spinach (washed and drained of as much water as possible) then fry it all together for further 5 or so mins turning over often and your done.

Traditionally served with rice and peas or just plain rice is fine but I always have a splash of curry sauce on top!
