Suya is a spicy meat kebab popular as a street food throughout West Africa. Though the recipe used to flavor the kebabs varies from region to region and vendor to vendor, ground peanuts and cayenne pepper are essential ingredients.
Typically made with skewered beef, suya can also be prepared using tripe, chicken, liver, or kidney meat. In West African countries like Nigeria, where suya is thought to have originated with the cuisine of the Hausa people, skewered suya meat is seasoned with a hot, nutty spice mixture before being grilled, then finished with a drizzle of vegetable or peanut oil before being served.
Our Suya Spice is based on a classic Nigerian recipe with the substitution of almonds for peanuts, giving the blend a mild, nutty flavor to balance the heat of cayenne and crushed chiles.
