You may or may not know that ackee (Blighia sapida) is one half of the Jamaican national dish of ackee and saltfish. You may or may not know that ackee is the vegetable kingdom's answer to scrambled eggs. Looks like it, kinda tastes like it.

I didn't use salted cod this morning, though. I pan-grilled a fillet of salmon. While it was cooking, I opened a can of ackee and picked some basil and Malabar spinach from my mini container garden. Tossed the ackee into another frying pan with a little oil, the basil and spinach, julienned ginger, chopped garlic, flaked chilies, bitters, salt and black pepper.
