A West Indian speciality whose recipe is fairly close to guacamole, avocado féroce gets its "ferocious" aspect from the strength of the spice used in its preparation. So you never know quite how ferocious this dish will be! Whether it's merely fragrant or very spicy, the preparation usually consists of dried cod, local avocado and manioc flour. The cod is first de-salted, crumbled and mixed with the avocado flesh, lime juice, bunching onion, garlic, habanero pepper and manioc flour.


  • ½ lb salt cod , desalted
    1 large ripe avocado (about 1 lb/500g or 2 medium avocados)
    ½ lb tapioca flour (cassava flour)
    3 scallions
    2 West Indian chili peppers (habañero peppers)
    3 cloves garlic , crushed
    ½ bunch parsley
    3 tablespoons sunflower oil
    Juice of 1 lime


  • In a pot, cover the cod with water and bring to boil.
    Remove the cod and drain immediately.
    Cut avocado in half, remove the flesh and cut into large pieces.
    Drizzle the avocado flesh with lime juice to prevent from blackening.
    Place parsley in the bowl of a food processor and chop finely.
    Then add the avocado, cod, garlic, a small piece of chili and chives. Mix.
    Add cassava flour and oil while mixing until mixture is homogeneous.
    Add salt and pepper
    Refrigerate for one hour before serving
