Suya, only Suya

Suya is a spicy shish kebab like skewered meat which is a popular food item in various parts of Nigeria and is enjoyed as a delicacy in West Africa.

Suya is generally made with skewered beef, ram, or chicken. Innards such as kidney, liver and tripe are also used. The thinly sliced meat is marinated in various spices which include peanut cake, salt, vegetable oil and other flavorings, and then barbecued. Suya is served with further helpings of dried pepper mixed with spices and sliced onions.


Halal meat preparation methods are normally used, especially in the northern parts of Nigeria, were the suspicion of non conformation to Muslim dietary prohibitions in Suya preparation has been known to cause riots.

What a very nice thing!

Enjoy it!
