Cassava & Salt Fish
If you like salted cod, then you'll like this dish.
To be used as a side or a meal.
One or two chopped, and boiled cassavas
One bag of Salted Cod (boned..unless you like picking bones out)...soaked with the water thrown off and refilled a couple of times.
Two or three onions chopped large or fine (to your taste)
Garlic (1 to 3 cloves - your taste)
1/2 cup of butter (or more - your taste)
Pepper (no salt...it's salty enough)
First, melt the butter and fry the onions until translucent, add the garlic and fry for a minute or two.
Throw in the Cod and fry until golden.
Add the cassava and stir, breaking it up until everything caramelizes, and has little caramelized bits throughout. Add more butter if you must.
It's like a West Indian Colcannon
