Green Fig (banana) With Cabbage & Saltfish.

In this recipe we’ll use green cooking bananas, which are commonly known as green fig in the Caribbean, to make a wonderful one-pot dish with saltfish (salted fish like cod), cabbage and other flavorful ingredients. To prep the salted fish, you need to soak it in cold water, then place in a pot with water and boil for 25 minutes. Drain, rinse, squeeze dry and shred.

You’ll Need…

2 lbs green cooking bananas
pinch black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic
1/4 scotch bonnet pepper
2 cups cabbage
2 sprigs thyme
2 tablespoon chopped parsely
3/4 cup saltfish
1 medium tomato
