Green Fig (banana) With Cabbage & Saltfish.

I know, I know; you're gonna say this Pete guy is hooked on Caribbean food. Okay, I'm busted. So sue me! 

Anyone who isn't hooked on this awesome cuisine is not firing on all their cylinders! 

If you have never had this wonderful simple dish, you are in for a real sunshine Caribbean treat!

I will let Chris reveal the magic of this simple gorgeous dish for you in his own unique way:




In this recipe we'll use green cooking bananas, which are commonly known as green fig in the Caribbean, to make a wonderful one-pot dish with saltfish (salted fish like cod), cabbage and other flavorful ingredients. To prep the salted fish, you need to soak it in cold water, then place in a pot with water and boil for 25 minutes. Drain, rinse, squeeze dry and shred.

You'll Need...

2 lbs green cooking bananas
pinch black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic
1/4 scotch bonnet pepper
2 cups cabbage
2 sprigs thyme
2 tablespoon chopped parsely
3/4 cup salt codfish
1 medium tomato
