How to Make Jamaican Ackee and Salt Fish

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 16 steps you must follow to make Jamaican Ackee and Salt Fish in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Place salted fish in a pot with water fully covering the fish. Place on the stove on high heat and bring to a boil with the pot uncovered. boiling removes the excess salt in the fish. The longer it boils the more salt is removed.
  • Step 2
  • While you wait for the fish to start boiling prepare the ackee by removing the black seeds of each and cleaning out the middle. The ackee used is fresh off the tree but this can be substituted for Grace Ackee in a can.
  • Step 3
  • Once the fish starts to boil throw off the water and add fresh water to the fish and return to the stove. If you are using the ackee from the tree, place in the pot with the fish uncovered and bring to a boil. If using ackee in the tin open the can and drain water throughly from the can and set aside.
  • Step 4
  • While you wait for the fish to come to a boil prepare the fresh seasoning
  • Step 5
  • Cut and dice up in small peices the onion, bell pepper, garlic, escallions with the green ends included, habanero pepper, tomato combine and set aside in a container.
  • Step 6
  • When the water comes to a boil remove the fish leaving the ackee in the water to continue boiling and place in a colander to drain. run cold water on the fish to cool it.
  • Step 7
  • While you wait for the fish to cool test the ackee if it is soft. usually it's cooked when the ackee is floating on top of the water. be careful to not over cook as this will make it too soft and will mash out when doing the final steps.
  • Step 8
  • Once the fresh ackee is cooked remove from water drain well and set aside
  • Step 9
  • When the fish is cool enough to handle pick the salt fish using your hands and remove the bones. The fish has a lot of bones so be careful to remove as much as possible. Once picked set aside
  • Step 10
  • Place a skillet on the stove with the vegetable oil and heat on high. Once hot enough turn down on medium heat
  • Step 11
  • Place 3 quarters of the seasoning in the oil and sautée until soft
  • Step 12
  • Once the seasoning is cooked place the picked salt fish in skillet with the seasoning turn up the heat from medium and cook/sautée. stir well so that the fish mixed in with the seasoning and coated with the oil. continue to stir and sautee fish on the oil for 5 minutes.
  • Step 13
  • At the end of the 5 minutes place the ackee in the skillet with the fish and seasoning. if using tin ackee this is when you would add the ackee to the mixture and stir well ensuring the ackee is evenly mixed in with the fish and seasoning. turn heat down on low. add the black pepper to taste and add the remaining seasoning on top and mix.
  • Step 14
  • While the mixture simmers continue to stir, be careful not to mash out the ackee. Once throughly mixed cover the pot for 2 minutes allowing the ackee to finishing cooking and absorb the flavour of the seasoning and the fish
  • Step 15
  • At the end of the 2 minutes stir and taste. The ackee should be soft, the seasoning should be soft. Once satisfied with the flavour turn off heat and serve.
