Ackee no Saltfish

When I first became vegan I thought I would miss traditional dishes that my mother used to make.  At the top of my list was Ackee and Saltfish.  As it turns out, the best part of ackee and saltfish is the ackee.  When I took my first bite of this vegan version of one of my childhood favorites, I didn’t miss the fish at all.  

1 can ackee, drained 
1/2  red bell pepper, diced
1 medium tomato, diced 
1 C spinach
1/2 white onion 
1Tbs thyme
1 tsp rosemary 
1 Tbs coconut oil 

Boil a pot of water to briefly dip the drained ackee into before draining a second time
Saute onion in oil until translucent
Add bell pepper, tomato, and spices 
Saute for five minutes
Add drained ackee – heat thoroughly  
Salt and pepper to taste


  1. wow! I’ve never even heard of ackee. How wonderful that you got to recreate a vegan version of your childhood favorite. That is always so great!

  2. I’m so glad dropped in. Your posts on vegan travel are exactly what I need right now. I’m going to Italy in a few weeks.
