Pop it all in a Shaker!
• 1 ounce Oat creamer
• 1 ounce Creme de cacao
• 1 ounce Brandy
• Nutmeg (pinch)
• 2 Tbsp Sea-moss (Keymoss)
• Cocoa Powder (for glass rim)
Ackee No Saltfish & Fried Dumplings
• 1 can 14 oz/396g of Hearts of Palm
• 1 cup filtered water
• 1 tablespoon sea salt
• 2 teaspoons kelp
• Nori flakes optional
Take out each piece out of the brine, and cut them in half, then diagonally, and shred them slightly. This will give you that salt-fish look. In a mason jar add shredded heart of palms, a cup of water, tablespoon of salt and kelp flakes for that fishy taste. Pop the lid on and Set aside overnight!
• 2 tbsp Mimi’s Fish Seasoning (no fish actually in it)
• 1 Ackee canned/tin ackee* (454g)
• 3 Cloves of garlic finely diced
• 1 inch of piece of ginger finely diced
• 2 Roma tomatoes roughly chopped
• 1 medium sized bell pepper roughly chopped
• ½ red onion roughly chopped
• 3-4 stalks fresh thyme
• 3 stalks scallion sliced
• 4 Tbsp coconut milk
• 4 Tbsp tomato paste
• ¼ of Scotch bonnet or more for your preferred heat finely diced (optional)
• Sea salt and ground black pepper to taste**
* Drain off the salt brine, rinse well and pat dry. Ensure the heat is hot and add the Salt-fish to the pan along with fish Seasoning and black pepper. Fry until it becomes brown and crisp (set aside)
* Heat a tablespoon of coconut oil in a pan. Add in the garlic, tomatoes, bell peppers, onions and cook down until it’s soft and the onions are translucent, for about 5-8 minutes. Add in the thyme and stir.
* Add coconut milk, tomato paste and liquid from the ackee can, pop the lid on and simmer for 15 mins.
* Stir in the salt fish, followed by the Ackee. Gently stir as it’s very delicate and you don’t want it to break apart. You’ll definitely want to re-season the dish with some more salt and top it all with a lot of black pepper.
Pop the lid on and let it warm though on a low heat for 15 mins.
