BOKKOM & TOMATO SALAD



RECIPE: BOKKOM & TOMATO SALAD

FROM COASTAL WATERS TO THE PANTRY ... 

BOKKOMS – lovingly PREPARED by women in small-scale fishing communities. These sundried harders can be quite daunting by the nature of their looks. But don’t be too judgy, they will upgrade your basic tomato salad to new heights, just give them a try. The trick is to shred the Bokkom finely – it’s rich and very salty, so needs distribution in a salad.  ThIS saltiNESS makes a magical combo with the acidity of the tomato and soft, creamy cheese. Try this recipe with ricotta or cream cheese, it's just as delicious. 

Celebrate our proud coastal cultural heritage with this product offering from the ABALOBI COASTAL PANTRY.
