The Ultimate Ackee And Saltfish Recipe.

jamaican ackee and saltfish (16)

As many of you know, there’s been several “Ultimate” dishes I’ve shared in the past and I’d like to add this Ackee and Saltfish dish to that list of amazing meals.  We were fortunate to have visited Jamaica a few weeks ago and even more lucky to have our friend’s mom cook us a traditional breakfast while we were at their home in Portmore. I have to confess that it was my first experience with ackee and saltfish and how quickly did I fall in love with this, the national dish of Jamaica.


I don’t ever recall seeing any ackee trees or even hearing about eating it while growing up in Trinidad and Tobago (have to ask my dad the next time we chat), but I assure you that it would make a great addition to our rich landscape and I know it would quickly become a hit on many breakfast tables throughout the twin island republic.

In this recipe I’m using canned ackee, but I assure you that though it’s very delicious, it cannot compare to the fresh ackee that was prepared for us. (BTW, do you know that in Ontario, we pay in excess of $11 a can for ackee? That’s over $72 TT or $970 Jamaican dollars) Really have to go plant some trees and cash in on this.

You’ll Need…

1 can ackee (use fresh if you have – about 2 cups)
1/3 lb saltfish – boneless/skinless  (salted cod or other)
1 medium onion sliced
1 habanero or scotch bonnet pepper
fresh thyme (couple sprigs)
1 medium tomato cubed
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoon olive oil (see note below)
2 scallions
1/4 medium sweet bell pepper
2 cloves garlic

Note: I like using olive oil, but you can use vegetable oil or butter as I’ve seen some people do. Since we’ll be using salted fish, there’s no need for any salt in this dish. Finally, if using canned ackee as I did, do handle with care or it will break-up easily and become “mush”.

Start by putting the dry salted fish to boil in a pot on high heat, then simmer for about 20 minutes (you can also soak in cold water overnight before boiling if you wish). I try my best to get the boneless/skinless saltfish as it makes for less work. After boiling drain, rinse under cool water and squeeze dry. Now break apart into the size pieces you like. I’ve seen people use a fork to sort of shred the saltfish, but I find that I like the texture of large flakes. Also, this allows me to actually taste the saltfish when eating.

While the saltfish was boiling to remove the excess salt that is was cured in (also re-hydrates and tenderizes the fish), I prepared the ingredients that we’ll be using in this dish.

In a large sauce pan, heat the oil on medium heat (or if want you can use butter or margarine), I love the flavour the cold press extra virgin olive oil gives to this dish. Then add the garlic, sliced onions and scotch bonnet pepper. Allow that to cook for a couple minutes (until the onion softens up a bit), then add the sweet pepper (bell pepper) scallion, black pepper,  and thyme. Allow this to cook for a couple minutes, then add the pieces of saltfish and cook for another 3-5 minutes. To prevent the tomato becoming too mushy, I now add it to the sauce pan and let it warm through for about a minute or two. Remember to stir, so all the ingredients get a chance to marry and explode with spectacular flavor.

Now is time to add the star of the show. Now here’s the thing about canned ackee.. it’s VERY fragile. So after I open the can, I pour everything into a strainer and run cold water over it. Just to remove that liquid it’s been packed in. After this drains, I add it to the saucepan with everything else, but I DON’T stir with a spoon. I use two forks and gently toss it with the other ingredients. The trick is not to break it apart, or you’ll end up with a huge pot of mush. After adding the ackee, it takes a minute or two for it to heat through and absorb all those wonderful layers of flavor we built.

It’s amazing how simple, yet tasty this dish is. Very similar to the tomato and saltfish we make in Trinbago, except you add the ackee which gives it a unique taste and texture. It looks very much like scrambled eggs, but I assure you that no scramble eggs will ever taste like this.

That lovely morning outside Kingston we had boiled green banana (green fig), yam, dumplings and some of the best bread I’ve ever had (hard dough) and we washed it all down with a piping hot cup of Milo sweetened with my favorite… condensed milk.

    Ackee & saltfish is one of my top 5 dishes on the planet, but it MUST be served with rice & peas. Red Stripe optional, LOL.

    I cook this dish at least twice a month, and will be cooking it for Easter Sunday breakfast, with boiled banana, white yam and callaloo, maybe a piece of dasheen. Breakfast is going to Awesome!

    Chris,

    My understanding is that Trinis are afraid of ackee, so they won’t touch it. I got lots of ackee when I lived in Trinidad but my Trinidadian friends swore I was poisoning them because they were told that ackee is poisonous.

    Mmmmhmmmm, so good. Sometimes my mom makes ackee with corn pork instead of saltfish. That also is so good.

      Try Ackee with smoked red herring, along with the usual Seasonings of Onions, garlic, green Peppers, thyme and Skellio
      ns as a garnish

    I love this recipe and make it once a month or so. The main problem is the cost of the ackees. To solve this problem I buy Grace ackees for $4.97 a can in Toronto when they go on sale at my local No Frills [reg. $7.97 a can]. I buy 4 or 5 cans at a time to stock up and to last until the next time they go on sale.

    I am from Jamaica, and I have never seen anybody prepared saltfish for ackee preparation without boiling it. Neither have I ever seen anybody adding canned, diced tomatoes to this succulent dish as suggested by JAmberr above. Your friends taught you well. So, hats off to you, my friend. You got the recipe down to a T. It is so sad when we become expert on things everything. Ask all the Jamaicans you know and they will concur with what I am saying to you.

    I haven’t had ackee and saltfish since my last trip to Jamaica in 2007. I just found it in MY LOCAL SUPERMARKET!!! Happy happy joy joy!! Now I can have it whenever I want. Thanks for the recipe, can’t wait to make it.

  12. February 14, 2015 / 2:57 am

    I Followed your recipe to a “T”;My Ackee & Saltfish came out FABULOUS!
    The only thing I added was some organic Coconut oil & some powdered Coconut milk..Wow..Now here in Brooklyn, New York, USA I don’t have to venture out to a Caribbean Restaurant in order to savor some Ackee & Saltfish. To complement the recipe I fried (in coconut oil) some breadfruit slices & I boiled some Korean Yam! Even my 78 year old Panamanian Parents were impressed!! Delicioso!! Gracias Caribbean Pot!

    As a Jamaican through and through I can tell you this much. Saltfish and Ackee original recipe like this one is dry and bland and only suitable for a light, plain breakfast. For a good hearty meal You need to add a can of chopped tomatoes and some Jamaican Jerk seasoning and some garlic before adding fish and Ackee. Also do NOT BOIL saltfish. Leave it to soak in cold water for at LEAST 24 hours, drain, simmer very, very gently for 25 minutes before you add to the frying pan or you will end up with stiff, chewy fish.

      So lucky to have a whole tree available at your disposal. I have been searching for the ackee fruit for more than 2 years to no avail. Tried this food somewhere and loved it but can’t seem to remember where. You would make a lot of money selling it to me

    Hi Chris,
    I've been making this for years from a recipe I got from some Jamaican girls I work with. The only difference is they didn't use garlic. Ill try it your way and see how it compares. Thanks for the tips!

    Great video. Even if you don't have fresh thyme, use the dried one – it is a must. When I add the ackee, to avoid it breaking up, I put it under the broiler briefly without disturbing it. When it is heated through (watch it, do not let it burn), I turn it over in a dish and using a spatula, gently turn it over a couple times. Also, experiment with different brands of ackee, some are firmer than others.

    Hi Chris! It's about time you had ackee and salt fish on here…ok, being half Jamaican I am a little byass, lol! Just a little note I like my ackee and salt fish to have some excess liquid so I use more oil, like maybe 4 tablespoon and then we put a cover on the pot when all the ingredients are added to lightly steam the ackee and veggies so more liquid to develop but not too long because then it can become mushy like you mentioned. Well, I hope I win the book because I love cooking pasta!

    Hi Chris, just love each and every one of your recipes. Your Ackee and saltfish recipe looks totally delicious, it's something I've never tried before, but have heard a lot about.. Ackee is not easily available in Trinidad, at least I haven't a clue where to get some, never seen it in the market…definitely will be looking on the supermarket shelves to see if the tinned version is available…would love to cook up a batch and enjoy the delicious taste myself.

    Salt Fish Is a Sunday Morning Breakfast Staple here on St. Kitts… Some times its done with Akee if available , but most times . just lots of onions . tomatoe and spiced up with a local hotsauce… i try cooking it in many ways … some times even in a rice cookup , which also has Chicken and some kind of pork , like maybe some good old pig tails… Yum ,yum.. But I still love just a nice plate of salt fish , topped with some sliced tomatoes and cucumbers .. . and some fried bread like bakes , or a nice Local butter bread… and to wash that down , I love my coffee…with a hint of clove or cayenne pepper in it ..

    Hey Chris,
    Just love receiving your recipes but unfortunately some of the ingredients are not available here. I have tried a few of your recipes and I must say they are delicious. I would really love to get this book, but I have not entered for the simple reason that when I receive any books etc. from outside europe we have to pay for importing.

    I can't get on with Ackee, my digestion just says no! lol But I love saltfish and so when I cook your recipie Chris, I just omit the Ackee. My mum (from Jamaica) used to make the most delicious but HOT saltfish fritters, part of the enjoyment of them was actually burning your mouth out! 😀

    Chris a coworker and i tried the Ackee and Saltfish recipe. It turned out soooo good. It was my first time having ackee and saltfish. She makes her own saltfish so it wasn't new to her. We had it at work for a potluck. There was nothing left. You couldn't even tell what was served in the dish. The bowl look as if it was licked clean…lol Thank you so much for your fantastic receipes!

    Thanks for this!

      That's not egg you are seeing, it's the Ackee. It sorts of looks like egg, and sort of tastes like a nutty egg, it is simply "The Best" !!!!! I have a bag of fresh Ackee on my kitchen counter that a Jamaican friend gave me this morning. Can't wait to get in there a start cooking. Yum, I was just looking around to see if there were any new ways to do the Ackee.
      Good luck and good tastes.

    I've had Ackee and saltfish a few times years ago and didn't like it. I've since developed a love for Bujol, so maybe I should try once more. Like for you, ackee is crazy expensive but maybe I'll treat myself.

  119. Greta George

    I am a vege…i love to fish…and Ketch crab…but can only do that for holidays when i go to Trinidad…I use extra firm Tofu to make scrambled tofu in the same way you would make scrambled eggs…hopefully i cud use the ideas in this recipe and the combination of ingredients…to come up with something…maybe not as great as the saltfish, ackee recipe.

    Went to Jamaica last year, was travelling for the first time. And at the hotel we were staying ,ackee and saltfish was one of the main breakfast dishes.So literally I was introduced to it . I fell in love,to me the ackee looked like scrambled eggs I boasted to my family when I returned.

  132. Linda Pachal

    I have never tried ackee. I've heard of it though and from the picture accompanying the recipe, it does look delicious. Is ackee a fruit/vegetable? It's definitely something I might give a try if someone else cooks it for me though (LOL) as I have no experience in cooking ackee.

    April 16, 2011 / 3:15 pm

    Hi Chris. I am a southa african woman married to a Jamaican man. I have been looking for lovely carribean recipes for some time. I happened to google for carribean beef soup and came accross your site. Since then i have made curry goat and the ackee and salt fish. My husband loved it and even said the food reminded him of his mum's cooking. What i particulalrly like is the step by step pictures . This makes the recipes easy to follow.

    Thanks Chris. It's great to finally have a recipe for Ackee and Saltfish. Anytime I feel like eating Ackee and Saltfish I have to go to a Jamaican Restaurant to have it and sometimes when I get there they are out of it. Now I will be eating my own with no fear of running out of it.

    Caribbean Pot is wonderful! As a person of Caribbean heritage who has lived in the U.S. for over 30 years, it brings back some dishes I've forgotten, and adds new methods to some I remember. My kids love it! I qalso refer many friends to your site. Love you!

    I never had ackee…but I love saltfish…adds flavour to any dish..yum! hehe

    I heard you have to be careful with the ackee though…esp when using fresh ones as you can only use the ones that are open…the others will be poisonous!

      Yes, you must ensure you get the pods that are open. The pods will have a about 3 or so "pegs" of ackee. Inside each peg is a little red thing that must be removed.

      I love ackee and salt fish but not with sweet pepper. I think it kills the taste.

    Hey! I came across your site one day when i was looking for a Shadon beni recipie…I must say i am very impressed with the manner in which you post the recipies! The step by step explanations with pictures at every stage are very effective! I love the fact that you focus on so many wonderful traditional recipies from the caribbean…whether it be saltfish buljol or buss up shut and curry cabbage! Going through the recipies brings back so many childhood memories and sometimes leave you saying…"' Aye! I always wondered how they made that!" I'm a big fan of all dishes caribbean and your site is a place where they are worshipped! Thanks for all the great work! Keep it up!

      I never knew how to salt fish personally, but I found the following via google (salting fish). http://autonopedia.org/food_and_nutrition/How_To_… I don't know if it will work, but I hope it does for you.

      I love ackee and saltfish, but I have never had it with peppers. I love how creative Caribbean people can be and make a recipe our own.
