Bahamas Boiled Fish in Grenada

They call it Boiled Fish in the Bahamas.  Boiled Fish sounds gross so our friends always ask for our Bahamian Fish Soup.

Fry a bit of bacon or salt pork in a big pot, along with a couple of onions, some celery and green pepper along with a couple of tablespoons of oil.  Choose your own proportions... be creative!!!

When the onions are translucent, add a starch... we love yams or sweet potatoes and carrots... but we've used breadfruit, bush yams and dasheen.  Enough for the people you are serving.  Also, a couple of cups of water and squeeze in at least 5 or 6 limes.  Smell your fingers!!!  Wooooohoooo!  Cook until the potatos (or whatever you've used) are tender.

Pam likes bland... but Glen insists, this recipe needs heat... so add significant quantities of Franks Hot Sauce (no substitutions here).

Add big chunks of fish - bones and all.  We like grouper but you can use anything.  Snapper, tuna, cod (from back at home) sailfish, wahoo... anything.

Cook until the fish is tender and falling off the bones.

Serve with buttered bread... or even better... cornbread.  Wash down with beer.

You'll eat your fingers off!!!
