Newfoundland and Jamaica have a staple of salt cod in common.
A couple of years ago, a visitor to the studio struck up a conversation about salt fish, as she recognized the iconic image from her native Jamaica.  She asked me how we like to cook it here in Newfoundland.  I was more interested in how she cooked it!  Here's the recipe I've been using for salt fish since that day...
 
Soak, cook, and debone a salt fish.  Set aside.  Chop tomatoes, peppers, and onions and sauté in olive oil until tender.  Toss the fish in, and let flavors mingle.  Serve on a bed of basmati rice or with bread.  Add fresh pepper at the table to taste.  Easy and delicious!
