A favor for a good friend…Sauteed Saltfish

saltfish2I have a friend visiting from out of town and she had one simple request  and that was to make her Saltfish.   This is a very West Indian dish and it is usually served either with rice and dhal or bake.  Bake is a fry bread that is a popular breakfast item in the Caribbean.  Today I will not be making rice or bake…she will provide that part of the meal.  This is a very simple and quick meal to make and it is a meal every aest Indian always have a craving for.  Just the mere mention of Bake and Saltfish causes jealously of those who aren’t here to eat it.  So today I will be the object of everyone’s envy. saltfishsaltfish3

    Saltfish is one of my favorite meals especially when combined with ackee, that’s what we eat in Jamaica. Breadfruit, bammy, and fried dumplings are usually made with it.

    I think I will make some this week, thanks for sharing!

    I have to say, “Guyanese style of making this dish is by far the best I have ever had”! Growing up on my island where many Guyanese migrated,I had the pleasure of this wonderful dish at my best friend’ s house/neighbor who’ s mother is Guyanese and would cook it especially for me! You broth back such good memories, Thank you!
