Inspired by the flavours of Jamaica, the ackee brings a nutty, creamy, texture and our Coconut, Chilli & Lemongrass rice blends incredibly with the fresh ingredients. A combo from heaven! Tildalicious tip: If you cannot get your hands on fresh callaloo you can swap it our for spinach. Callaloo is part of the spinach family.
