Eyeing the breakfast buffet at an all-inclusive resort on the beach, my curious 7-year-old niece is intrigued with the Jamaican staple called saltfish and ackee. Announcing that it ‘looks a lot like scrambled eggs’, she agreed to give it a try after the affable Chef explained that although the island’s national dish, made with the yellow part of the ackee fruit, does look like scrambled eggs , it’s uniquely Jamaican. A few forkfuls later and the creamy ackee sautéed with peppers, onions and flaked codfish got the thumbs up.
Known as the birthplace of reggae and adored for year-round sunshine and white sandy beaches, Jamaica dishes up a hearty helping of hospitality. For a vacation worth its sea salt, savor the many ‘try it, you’ll like it’ moments at these family-friendly resorts.
