Optional ingredients:
2 cloves of garlic
4 Scallion (or spring onions)
6 Slices of bacon

-Chop the onion, sweet pepper, chilli pepper and tomato whilst waiting for the fish to cook.
-Wash the Callaloo in a pot of water and drain thoroughly.
-Remove the fish from water and allow to cool.
-Remove all of bones and skin then flake the flesh of the fish.
-Melt the butter in a frying pan and add the onion, black pepper, sweet pepper, chilli and thyme. Fry for about 5 minutes.
-Add the callaloo and half a cup of water, cover and steam for 15 minutes
-Add the tomatoes and flaked fish and steam for another 10 minutes
