This was a great recipe. I used green bell peppers and I didn't use any red pepper flakes. I cubed the avocado into the recipe instead of having it on the side. I also used a good quality extra virgin olive oil. I prefer my buljol chilled but I was so eager I ate it right away. When I had seconds a few hours later, it was even more flavorful. Enjoy!

I am from the Caribbean as well and I remember my grandmother making saltfish on Sunday morning with Butter bread and avacado.

I'm also from Trinidad & Tobago (T&T) in the Caribbean. Yes indeed, growing up in the '60s, and even now in some homes, Sundays breakfasts usually consisted of 'Buojol' along with scrambled eggs, 'hops bread' or 'bake' (a fried flat bread or thick stovetop roasted flat bread) as well as a green salad, West Indian style. In my home and many others I visited, this dish was never cooked. The saltfish (salted cod to Americans) was soaked overnight, rinsed out twice before using, flaked, and combined with the other ingredients, all of which were fresh and raw, chopped, minced, or crushed--onions, garlic, tomatoes, sprig of thyme, some times fresh watercress in bite size pieces, (no lettuce), scotch bonnet pepper or bird pepper, a little crushed black pepper, slivers of green onives (chives), olive oil, and vinegar or freshly squeezed lemon juice. Avocados could be cubed and lightly tossed just before serving or on the side if preferred. Sliced hard boiled eggs were optional. The fish was the greatest quantity of ingredients balanced to one's taste.

This is very good recipe for salted fish. Ii is my first attempt at cooking salted fish and it turned out so good. The recipe may sound a little ordinary, but when you make this it is rich and fantastic. Be sure to use avocados and incorporate it into the sauce. This recipe would be good not only for breakfast, but for festive food too, I think.

Excellent recipe....I'm from the Virgin Islands and have never made this dish but after seeing this recipe I tried it and it is perfect....the only thing I added was a scotch bonnet for more hot flavor...just great!

Made this using leftover grilled swordfish steak and more lettuce to eat as a main dish salad. Both my husband and I thought it was delish! Will try it again using chicken or shrimp or pork. A keeper! Will be a great summer meal.

I followed this recipe to a T and added only a little extra scotch bonnet sauce. Hubby likes it HOT! It is fabulous and so easy ...I've made it twice in a week.
