  1. Soak the Saltfish in warm water for 1 hour for an hour. Drain the water then soak again in fresh water for another 30-45 minutes. (You can choose to soak the fish overnight as well) Soaking the fish will get rid of the excess salts.
  2. Place a frying pan over a medium heat and mist with cooking spray. Fry the onion, spring onion, peppers and garlic for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Remove the saltfish from the soaking water and flake into the pan. Season with white pepper, paprika thyme and the scotch bonnets. Cook for a further minute.
  4. Add the ackee and gently fold into the pan. Cook for 4-5 minutes. Remove from the pan and serve with steamed kale.
