  • Dry fish
  • Palm oil
  • Vegetable oil
  • Rodo (scotch bonnet peppers)
  • Onions


  • Prep: Pick beans to make sure there are no stones or chaff in it. Rinse carefully. Slice plantain and set aside. Slice rodo and onions and keep aside. Rinse the dry fish and tear into little pieces
  • Cooking: Bring the beans to boil with a lot of water. Boil the beans till soft enough. This should take about 30 minutes
  • While the beans is being allowed to cook, heat oil for frying. When it is hot, put in the sliced plantains and fry till golden brown
  • When you find the beans soft enough, put in salt, terra seasoning cubes, crayfish, dry fish, onions and rodo. There should still be a little bit of water so it wouldn’t be too dry
  • Finally, add the palm oil, and allow it to cook for a bit to get rid of that raw palm oil smell. When the palm oil loses the fresh smell, take down the beans from the heat and serve with fried fish and plantain!
