2 cans ackee
1/2 lb. salt fish
1/4 cup salad oil or melted butter
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. finely chopped Tabasco pepper
1/4 lb. salt pork
6 strips bacon, fried crisp
4 med. sized tomatoes
3 stalks leeks or escallion
3 med. sized onions, chopped finely

Wash the salt fish and then place in a saucepan with sufficient
cold water to cover generously and boil for about 15 minutes, or
until fish is tender. Pour off water and remove all skin and bones
from fish and flake with a fork, after which set aside in the dish
in which you are going to serve same. Keep warm. Open cans of
ackee and drain off liquid. Set the ackees in a colander, or
strainer, over hot water to warm. Fry the diced pork until all
the fat has been expressed and only the crisp pork remains. Strain
off the fat and set pork aside. To the fat of the pork add the
salad oil or melted butter and with this fry the diced escallion,
tomatoes, onions, and pepper for about 4 minutes over medium heat.
Now pour a small amount of the fried seasoning over the flaked
saltfish. Fish in the dish, turning it with a fork. Pour the rest
of the fried seasoning over the ackees and the diced pork. Now
lay the crisp fried strips of bacon on top and sprinkle all with
black pepper. Serve hot. This dish may be set in a moderate oven
to keep warm until ready to serve, but cover with foil before doing
so. Garnish with parsley, radish roses or rings of green peppers.
