Lychee is a Chinese gooseberry. Firm fleshed, mild flavor between a green grape and a peach.

But one can should last you about a whole meal.

You like trying new things.. just think of it as an adventure, and you could put the ackee and salt fish in a bento.

I have a bunch of salt cod recipes...almost bought some the last time I was in NY until I noticed it was a Canadian product...looked at fresh lychees when I was in a grocery store in TX, but passed on them...from my experience, salt cod and lychees do not compare re: taste (don't quite know how the salt cod thread got shifted to lychees...).

Oh, it's simple. Salt cod is often paired with ackee, and lychees taste nothing like ackee.

Though ackee and lychee are related somehow.. I think through marriage, but I am not certain.

Nice to know, I love lychees...the Wiki article said they were related, so i was just wondering if they tasted the same as ackee. Now I know. Thanks!

recipe, salt

Salt Cod I have managed, for all these years, to have never used salt cod. But thinking about how much of a staple it is in the Caribbean where people are surrounded by excellent fresh fish, I figured there must be something more to it than preserved fish that people got a taste for during slave days. So, last night, I made cod cakes. They were quite good, very mild. While soaking the fish for a day and a half though many changes of water, I was struck that there was no fishiness at all after it was cured. I'll try another dish this week, if anyone has a suggestion. 3 stars 1 reviews
