Directions

  1. To remove excess salt from the fish, bring the fish to a boil in a large pot of water. Drain the water, and repeat the process. Drain the fish, flake, and press liquid out.
  2. In a large skillet, saute oil, onions, tomatoes, and peppers for 2 minutes. Mix in flaked saltfish, lemon juice, and hot pepper. Cook mixture at a low heat until the moisture has almost completely evaporated.
  3. Pile the mixture into the center of a serving dish, and arrange lettuce and avocado around it.

This was a great recipe. I used green bell peppers and I didn't use any red pepper flakes. I cubed the avocado into the recipe instead of having it on the side. I also used a good quality extra virgin olive oil. I prefer my buljol chilled but I was so eager I ate it right away. When I had seconds a few hours later, it was even more flavorful. Enjoy!

I am from the Caribbean as well and I remember my grandmother making saltfish on Sunday morning with Butter bread and avacado.
