Salt Fish And Akee
What You Need:
  • 1 pound salt cod
  • 4 ounces salt pork, cut into ╝-inch dice
  • 1 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh hot chilies
  • A 1-pound 2-ounce can of akee (about 1 cup), thoroughly drained (see Glossary)
  • A pinch of crumbled dried thyme
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 firm ripe tomato, cut lengthwise into 8 wedges

  • How To Cook:
    1. Starting a day ahead, place the cod in a glass, enameled or stainless-steel pan or bowl, cover it with cold water, and soak for at least 12 hours, changing the water 3 or 4 times.

    2. Drain the cod, rinse under cold running water, place it in a saucepan, and add enough fresh water to cover the fish by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over high heat. (Taste the water. If it seems excessively salty, drain, cover with fresh water, and bring to a boil again.)

    3. Reduce the heat to low and simmer uncovered for about 20 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily when prodded gently with a fork. Drain thoroughly. With a small knife, remove and discard any skin and bones and separate the fish into coarse flakes. Set aside.

    4. In a heavy 8- to l0-inch skillet, fry the salt pork over moderate heat, turning the dice about with a spoon until they are crisp and brown and have rendered all of their fat. Discard the pork.

    5. Add the onions and chilies to the rendered fat in the skillet and, stirring frequently cook for about 5 minutes, until they are soft but not brown. Watch carefully for any sign of burning and regulate the heat accordingly.

    6. Add the flaked cod, akee, thyme and a few grindings of pepper, and cook for a minute or two, to heat them through.

    7. To serve, transfer the entire contents of the skillet to a heated platter and garnish with the wedges of tomato.
