  • Pimento chopped
  • 1 stalk celery finely chopped
  • 1 sprig of chive finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil
  • *The centre leaf is curled and tender so this is the best to use


  • Chop and pressure cook the pigtail. (If you wish to use saltfish, cook, clean, remove the bones, and break it into flakes.)
  • Chop and wash the dasheen bush. Remember to always cut off the tips.
  • Cook the onion, garlic and pimento in a little oil. Add the pigtail (or the saltfish). Add the dasheen leaves, and other seasoning.
