Mackerel RunDown is easy and delicious! If you like the ingredients in the name, you'll love the dish.
1 spring of thyme
3 tomatoes, chopped
3 stalks scallion, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
2 lbs salt mackerel
1 cup water
1 cup of coconut rundown (see traditional Jamaican coconut rundown recipe)
1 Scotch Bonnet pepper
Soak the mackerel in water overnight to remove the salt. If the mackerel is still very salty, boil in a pot of water for about 20 minutes.
Drain the mackerel and cut it into small pieces.
Add the mackerel to the rundown, cover and cook for about 14 minutes on medium heat.
Add the onion, garlic, tomatoes, scallion, scotch bonnet pepper and thyme.
Stir in all ingredients. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 more minutes.
Best served with boiled green bananas, yam, cassava, sweet potatoes and cassava dumplings.
Tip: keep whole to get the best flavor, then remove after cooking or use a third of a pepper chopped finely without the seeds
