ACKEE & SALTFISH, FRIED PLANTAIN, DUMPLINGS JAMAICAN BREAKFAST | SONJDRADELUXE

HAPPY THURSDAY! Today we are making Ackee and Saltfish, with fried plantain and breadfruit, and boiled yams & dumplin! This dish is easily made vegan or ITAL!! take out the salt fish and use more salt, even add a bit of veggie stock to deglaze veggies and have more liquid (great for dipping fried dumplings) use water or milk substitute for dumplings! I am still trying to get comfortable filming myself cook but I am enjoying the challenge! How does your family make Ackee and saltfish? And what do you want to see next! I have been exploring different foods from around the world and really enjoying creating. Next video is GLAMMMMM THO!

For Boiled dumplings, u just need flour, water and salt… but like I said I was going ahead as if I was making fried dumplings until I realized I didn’t have baking powder. Fried dumplings u add the sugar, butter, baking powder and milk(or water), then let it rest

Salt fish/salted Cod (note- add after onion)
Onion
Red and orange peppers
Scallions or green onion
Tomatoes
Fresh thyme
Scotch bonnet pepper
Garlic
Pimento
Black pepper

Ackee – a fruit! If you’ve never tried it, it has similar umami as an avocado. (Umami being the 5th taste our mouths can comprehend other than salt, sweet, bitter, and sour- look it up it’s great!) it’s a velvety creamy texture, the softest hint of sweet and saltiness,(not making it sweet in anyway, but also far from salty), the most subtle hint of sour(much more mild than what you would find in a sourdough bread) all these delicate flavours come together and make magic!

Yams and potato (I used orange yams very common in Canadian and American groceries stores, and white yam, more commonly found in African or Caribbean markets)

Ripe plantain
Bread fruit (harder to find)

Canola or vegetable oil
