GROUND PROVISION and SALTFISH PIE

Ground provision pie is a great way to use any extra ground provisions you have in your kitchen. Provisions and saltfish is a popular combination in Trinidad so why not add some saltfish to the ground provision pie?

It’s a tasty and easy dish to make!

YIELD: 9×9 baking dish

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 lbs ground provision (you can use any type and any quantity)
  • 1/2 lb saltfish
  • 3 tbsp green seasoning
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 pimentos, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp JGM Products cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp margarine or butter
  • Cheese (as you like)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Peel provisions and boil until tender.
  2. Soak or boil saltfish for a few minutes to get rid of any excess salt. The length of time can vary depending on the type of saltfish. I usually taste a piece after a few minutes of boiling/cooking to determine how much longer it needs to be boiled/cooked.
  3. Once the provisions are cooked through properly, place them in a bowl and mash them up until there are no more chunks.
  4. Break saltfish into small pieces and add to the mashed provisions.
  5. Add all other ingredients listed above and mix well to ensure everything is nicely incorporated.
  6. Place mixture into a greased baking dish. Top with cheese as you like.
  7. Bake at 375degrees for 35-40 minutes.
  8. Allow pie to cool before cutting.
  9. Enjoy your ground provision and saltfish pie.

NOTE:

  • You can eliminate the cheese if you like. I don’t usually add any to the mixture. I only put some as the topping but it’s all up to you.
  • The type of provisions used doesn’t have to be fixed. You can use any combo that adds up to roughly 3 lbs. Having a kitchen scale comes in handy for this purpose.
  • You can eliminate the egg. You can instead add some flour to the milk or add lots of cheese.
