Trini' Saltfish Buljol (stewed salted cod fish) Recipe

This is one of the historically popular foods of my county, and it is 'mimicked' throughout the Southern Caribbean. It is very tasty, easy to make and usually eaten with ground provisions, fried bakes/stove-top roasted bakes/oven-baked coconut bakes, 'sada' roti or even rice. "Bakes" are special breads (African heritage), and "Sada" (East indian heritage) is similar to pita bread.
