Seamoss Slammer

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

Saltfish Ingredients 

• 1 can 14 oz/396g of Hearts of Palm

• 1 cup filtered water

• 1 tablespoon sea salt

• 2 teaspoons kelp 

• Nori flakes optional

Saltfish Prep

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**

Let’s cook!

* 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.

Jamaican Fried Dumplings


• 1 cup of all purpose flour, sifted

• 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

• 1/2 Tablespoon unsalted vegan butter, room temperature

• Approximately 1/3 cup water


* Sift the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and whisk it all together.

* Add butter to the dry ingredients and use your hands to spread it evenly.

* Pour the water little by little and mix it all together, by using your hand to form a dough. 

* Leave the dough in the bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Leave it covered for about an hour to rise.

* Divide into six pieces and form dumplings

* Deep fry them fry for about 6 to 8 minutes by rotating each side as it fries. I used a deep fryer to fry this recipe!

Serve and Enjoy
