A Delicious Caribbean Breakfast: Saltfish & Pumpkin with Fried Dumplings!

Growing up, weekends were special in my house. My mom would always get up early in the morning and get breakfast started. Saturday morning breakfast in a caribbean household usually smelled of fried dumplings, eggs, fried bake, saltfish, corn beef, or porridge. I always had to get up and assist in some sort of way, whether it be cutting up onions or monitoring the fire under breakfast while my mom made dinner preparations. I woke up this morning with a caribbean breakfast on my mind, so I picked up some pumpkin from a west indian grocery store, along with some saltfish and fresh ground seasonings. It came out amazing! I was quickly transported right back to the heart of my childhood as my family sat to enjoy to a delicious breakfast of fried dumpling, pumpkin & saltfish, fried plantain, and avocado. To make saltfish and pumpkin I used:

-1 lb of saltfish

-1/2 lb pumpkin

-1 tsp black pepper

-Few sprigs of thyme

-1/2 onion, chopped

-1 tomato, chopped

-1 scotch bonnet pepper (optional)

-1/2 cup of canola oil
