Author's Notes

When slicing the taro, wear gloves or coat your hands with some vegetable oil as the sap/starch from peeling the taro can cause some irritation to your hands/fingers.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Using a sharp knife or potato peeler, remove the other skin of the Taro (4 cups) and discard. Remove any blemishes and cut off any previously cut areas to expose the fresh interior. Cut into 2 to 3-inch pieces and place in a pot with water.
Step 2
Add Salt (1/4 tsp) and bring to a rolling boil. Cook until tender, which you can test by poking with a fork or knife, then drain the water out.
Step 3
Prepare the Shredded Salted Cod (1 cup) by boiling in water, drain, and rinse with cool water. Heat the saltfish in Olive Oil (3 Tbsp) and let it cook for about 3 minutes on low heat.
Step 4
Add the Garlic (2 cloves) , Onion (1) , and Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch) to the saltfish. Cook for another 3 minutes, then add the Fresh Thyme (3 sprigs) .
Step 5
After 2 minutes add the Tomatoes (2) , Scotch Bonnet Pepper (1/4) , and Scallions (3 bunches) and combine with cooked saltfish. Add the taro pieces.
Step 6
Stir well and cook for another 3-5 minutes to infuse the taro pieces with the stewed salted fish. Serve warm and enjoy.
