Traditional Ghanian Suya  Kebab Recipe

Traditional Ghanian Suya Kebab Recipe

The quintessential Ghanian Street food, Suya, can now be made at home using my Suya Gold spice blends. The combination of smoked paprika, ground peanuts, garlic powder, ginger powder, onion powder, peppercorns, coriander seeds, nutmeg, grains of Selim, and cayenne pepper make up this rich smoky and fragrant spice blend.

Accra has so many street vendors on every street where you can buy anything you can imagine, the most popular vendors are the ones with a good reputation amongst locals for their delicious food, some stands have been going for generations and still attract queues daily. whenever I visit Ghana I have to stop by "Auntie Muni" for some of Accra's best Waakye.

Suya is such a big part of life in Ghana, I can remember as a teenager on a night out with friends we always stopped by our local Suya stand for some sustenance after a night of clubbing.

You can use any meat or even just vegetables to recreate this delicious dish, In Ghana its traditionally  its made using beef, but its also made with chicken or goat and sometimes innards all generously coated with Suya Spice blends and cooked over an open flame.
