Serves: 6
  • 1½ cup of honey beans(any type of beans would work)
  • 3-4 medium sized corn on the cob(1 large can of sweet corn works)
  • 2 cooking spoons palm kernel cream or palm oil
  • One smoked fish(soak and wash with warm water)
  • 3tbsps of dry grounded crayfish or 1tsp of shrimp paste
  • 1-2 crushed habanero peppers I.e.ata-rodo
  • 1tbsp dry grounded pepper
  • 1-2tbsp coconut oil(optional)
  • Bouillon
  • Salt to taste
  1. Remove the husks from the corn and wash each one. Using a knife, neatly and carefully scrape the corn off the cob; beginning from the top to the bottom and into a bowl; then set aside.
  2. Pick through the beans to remove any stones. Wash and bring it to a boil; then drain. Set to cook in some water(do not season). Once the beans gets half way cooked, add the palm kernel cream, the crayfish, habaneros, salt, bouillon, and half of the fish. Stir and cook(add more water if needed). Once the oil mixes well with the beans and the beans gets softer, add the corn, stir and reduce the heat. Cook for about 10minutes; then stir in the dry pepper, the remaining fish and the coconut oil. check for seasonings, stir, cover and set aside
Don't have palm oil? Fear not; you could use a blend of tomatoes and red bell peppers with a ratio of 1:1; adding it at the time you are supposed to add the palm oil. You could even use tomatoes and peppers along with the oil if you choose to
