I am a mom. To me am the best cook in the world in fact the universe. However, when my kids want a break from my cooking. We hit up aunt Melicia’s in the cool hills of upper St Andrew. In her breathtaking kitchen you can find authentic Jamaican dishes such as red herring and ackee wash down in coconut milk


3 whole dried red herring (boil for 15- 20 minutes)

3dozen ackee

2 stalks scallion, sliced

1 medium-size onion, diced

 1 Sweet pepper red/ green/ yellow

1 cup coconut oil

Put herring to soak in cold water overnight. Drain water; add fresh water and boil until tender. Drain water and cool,

Bring oil to acceptable heat and sauté onion, garlic, scallions, tomatoes, sweet pepper until vegetables are translucent. Add flaked red herring, fresh or canned ackee, black pepper, pimento and salt to taste. Adjust seasoning to taste and remove from heat.
