-Whose kitchen are we going to today?
-Hi. My name's Jenea.
Come in, come in.
-This is my mum.
And today I'm going to be cooking saltfish and cabbage,
which is my favourite dish.
Jenea has her own special way of making saltfish and cabbage,
with a mango salad.
Jenea's family are from Jamaica, where saltfish
and cabbage is very popular.
Jamaica is a big island in the Caribbean Sea.
It has warm tropical weather with long sandy beaches
and wonderful mountains inland.
Lots of food we eat comes from Jamaica, including sugar,
coconuts and even cocoa beans, used for making chocolate.
Jamaica is an island,
so the people that live there eat a lot of fresh fish.
Saltfish is one of the most popular fish in Jamaica.
Jenea's washed her hands, put on her apron and she's ready to cook.
I'm making saltfish and cabbage for my friends.
And she's invited Jaden, Skyla and Michael to try
one of the ingredients in her special Jamaican meal. What's that?
-I think it's a pepper.
-You're right. It's green pepper.
-I really like it. It tastes a little bit peppery, but nice.
-Michael likes it.
-And Skyla's not keen.
Uh, no, I don't like it.
Let's see what happens when they taste her recipe later because
green pepper is a special ingredient in her saltfish and cabbage.
As well as green pepper, you'll need red and yellow peppers,
pre-soaked saltfish, vegetable oil,
chilli flakes, dried thyme,
fresh garlic, cabbage leaves,
onion powder, black pepper, water,
tinned mango, spring onions,
butter, fresh coriander, and lime.
Now we're going to get the garlic. We'll take the skin off.
If you find this tricky, ask a grown-up to help.
We're going to put it in this bag and mash it.
That's loud! Now tip it into an ovenproof pot, add vegetable oil...
..some dried thyme, chilli flakes,
sprinkle the onion powder,
and some black pepper.
Now, Jenea, Give it a good old mix.
And now we're going to get some saltfish.
Jenea's mum has prepared the saltfish for her to use
and left it in the fridge.
I got two forks to take it apart,
but you need to check if there's any bones in it.
Saltfish is a really popular fish
to eat in Jamaica.
Now just add it to the pot.
It's important to wash your hands after touching raw fish.
Then it's time to give it a mix.
-Now it's time for my very special ingredient.
Green peppers are also called bell peppers or capsicums,
and they come in all sorts of colours.
All peppers grow green, but some types change colour if they're left
to ripen on the plant for longer,
going yellow, orange, or red.
Peppers were first grown in Mexico,
and Central and South America,
but now they grow all around the world.
Peppers are part of the same family as chillies,
but they don't taste as hot or spicy.
-That's a relief!
This is my green pepper.
So, what I'm going to do is push down and break it apart like this.
-Now, you can see some seeds in it, so you have to take them out.
When you've done that, tear the pepper up into small pieces
and add it to the pot, like Jenea.
Now you can do the same with the red and yellow peppers,
and then give them all a good mix.
Oh! That looks nice.
Then ask a grown-up to put it in the oven for you.
-Now carefully cut up washed cabbage leaves.
I'm going to cut the big white bit because it takes longer to cook.
-Now we're going to start cutting it like this.
-Cut up all the leaves.
I'm going to get some baking paper.
Then get yourself a nice knob of butter and rub all over the paper.
-Now ask a grown-up to take the pot out of the oven for you...
..to do the next important bit.
-Put the cabbage in now, Mum.
Now can you put the water in, please?
And then put the paper on top.
Then ask them to put it back into the oven for you.
Oh! Thanks, Mum.
Now I'm going to make my mango salad to go with my saltfish and cabbage.
First I need to cut my mango.
-Now I'm going to chop up my coriander.
Next, let's top and tail those spring onions and chop them
into small pieces.
Well done, Jenea.
Add the chopped coriander and spring onion to the mango.
Then squeeze in the fresh lime juice and give it a good mix.
-Mix it, mix it, mix it!
-I hope my friends like this.
Now, if you want to make Jenea's saltfish and cabbage recipe,
first peel the skin off a garlic clove,
put it in a plastic food bag,
and bash it with a rolling pin.
Tip the crushed garlic into an oven-proof pot with a lid,
add vegetable oil, dried thyme,
chilli flakes, onion powder,
a good twist of black pepper,
and give it a stir.
Now ask a grown-up to prepare the saltfish for you.
Check it for bones and then shred it up like this.
Add it to the pot,
but don't forget to wash your hands
after handling raw fish.
Then mix it all together.
Push your thumbs in and pull apart a green pepper and remove the seeds.
Add it to the pot and do the same with the rest of your peppers.
And give everything a good mix. Mix it, mix it, mix it!
Pop on the lid and ask a grown-up to put it in the oven for you.
Now carefully cut the stem out of the washed cabbage leaves.
Then cut up the rest into smallish pieces.
Spread butter onto your baking paper.
And when it's ready,
ask a grown-up to take the pot out of the oven and do this bit for you.
That's to add the cabbage, water,
and carefully push the baking paper, butter side down, into the pot.
Then they should put it back into the oven to finish cooking
while you make the mango salad.
Carefully cut up tinned mango and fresh coriander.
Top and tail spring onions and cut them into small pieces.
Add the coriander and spring onions to the mango.
Squeeze in the juice of half a lime, and mix it all together.
Mix it, mix it, mix it!
Now, there's just enough time for Jenea to get the table ready
for her special Jamaican meal.
This is my favourite drink. Sorrel and ginger.
It's a traditional drink in Jamaica. I hope my friends like it.
A sorrel and ginger drink sounds delicious, Jenea,
and your table looks fantastic.
Now, everyone's washed their hands and they're ready to eat.
You've got a sorrel and ginger drink. It's from Jamaica.
It's like a tradition to drink it there.
I think that's really good.
Ha-ha! They like it. And here's Mum with the cooked food.
The cooked saltfish and cabbage looks really colourful,
and the mango salad makes it look even tastier.
Wow! Look at those colours.
Mum's even made Jamaican dumplings and rice as well. What a treat.
Everyone thought differently
when they tasted the green pepper earlier.
Do you think they'll like it, now it's been cooked by Jenea?
-I think that's really good.
-I don't like it, I love it.
-What do you guys think my special ingredient is?
Green pepper? Yep.
What do you think of the green pepper, now it's cooked in my dish?
I think it's much better than before.
-I like it much better now, when it's cooked.
-Thank you very much, guys.
Well done, Jenea. And they like the taste of green pepper,
now it's been cooked in your saltfish and cabbage dish.
Thank you for coming to My World Kitchen.
