Hello Everyone! I know I am not the best cook in the world, but I know among the things that I enjoy doing are cooking, reading, and writing. Maybe not in that order, but you get the point. I had fun making one of my favorite Haitian dishes a few days ago, and it is my pleasure to share the recipe with you. Dried Salted Cod Fish is very popular in our country. We cook it like we cook any other fish, but we don't let it marinade for a long time like we do with fresh fish. I love to eat it with rice and peas for dinner, but since I made it for lunch, I went for something lighter. It only takes a few minutes to get this meal ready and it is delicious.
You will need:
Soaking your fish in plain water overnight is recommended to get rid of some of the salt. Rinse your fish the next day. Add some lime juice, plus Cayenne pepper and seasoning powder. The lime juice gets rid of the fish smell and adds flavor. On medium heat, add oil, tomato paste, and 1/2 cup water in a frying or sauce pan to dissolve the paste. Add the remaining water to the pan. Let it boil for a few minutes before adding the fish to the gravy. Add the onion slices after the fish is fully cooked. I ate my fish with cooked green bananas, but sweet potatoes are wonderful choices, too.
