Kippers - cooked the Caribbean way
Whether you have tried kippers and hated them or you love them, this Caribbean cooking method will make this a favourite meal
- 2 2 whole kippers
- 1 oinion sliced
- 1 sweet pepper sliced
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 2 tomato Chopped or use 1/2 tin plum
- 300 gm plain flour
- 1 tsp salt
- water to mix
Sliced onion and sweet pepper, slow cooked until soft with a little oil. Throw in 2 tomatoes chopped and cover to simmer down. Add shredded Kippers, cook for 2-3min. season to taste and serve with Ooft! on a soft roll or in this case fried bakes. Open the pocket and put in the mix and add lots of Ooft! ….a scrumptious new way to eat this healthy smoked fish.
Fried Bakes (The bakes are optional as pita bread or Indian naan obtainable from most supermarkets works well, we have even used Scottish breakfast rolls. But if you want the true Caribbean experience try these)These are very simple to make. Flour salt and water mix to a soft consistency and leave for 20 minutes to settle. Heat a pan of oil to about 160 degrees. Take pieces of dough about the size of a lime and roll out not too thin to about 3 inches. Drop in hot fat and here is the secret. using a metal spoon constantly pour hot oil from the pan over the bake as it rises in the pan until to your surprise it will puff up and then start to brown. Remove with slotted spoon into a bowl with kitchen towel to absorb the oil.
