This dish traditionally includes salt fish. We have not included it in this recipe because 1 serving of salt fish contains 10 grams of salt and 6 grams is the recommended daily allowance. This dish is a very nutritious meal, however, people often eat a large quantities of Eba. Eba is classed as a starchy food and one serving is 2 heaped tablespoons. You may chose to have two servings in a meal, but nevertheless, be careful not to over eat.
