  • 1/2 lb saltfish
  • 1 bundle bodi chopped
  • 2 pimento peppers chopped
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 4 clove garlic chopped
  • Oil for sauteing


  • Boil, clean and break up the saltfish into small pieces and set aside.
  • Heat the oil over a medium flame; saute the onion and garlic for about one minute or when it's beginning to look slightly brown. Add the bodi (long bean) and pimento pepper.
  • Cook until tender. (Note: You may have to add a little water (approx 1/4 cup) to the pot to avoid burning the bodi.)
  • When the bodi is tender, add the saltfish and cook for about three minutes. Serve over rice or with roti or bake.
