Reasons To Eat Suya

Suya is a well-known Nigerian grilled meat dish that can be found in almost any eatery in the country. This dish can be made with various types of meats including chicken, fish and beef. If you are interested in trying out exotic dishes from around the world, then suya is a must do! And you don’t even have to travel to Nigeria to taste it; it can be readily recreated in your kitchen itself no matter which part of the world you are in!

Those who have already had a taste of suya will need no further convincing, but if you haven’t yet been introduced to the delights of West African cuisine, then here are a few reasons to try suya today!

It’s easy
Sometimes, making a dish that is from a cuisine that is alien to us can be a daunting task. You might come across strange and peculiar ingredients which you’ve never heard of before. What’s more, you might really not be inclined to pick up a whole set of ingredients just to make one dish – and then have them sitting idly in your pantry till well past their expiry dates. Been there, done that. Therefore it makes sense to enjoy Suya from for ease and convenience.

It’s healthy
Suya is a great way to incorporate more protein into your diet. Added to the fact that suya is not fried but rather grilled, any excess fat tends to drip away from the meat whilst grilling. So if you are health conscious or are trying to lose weight, then you can enjoy your suya without any guilt! And let me tell you, it isn’t often that something so yummy is actually also rather tasty!

It’s quick
Food is important in life but frankly, I do believe that there is more to life than sweating and slaving away in the kitchen. I am a great fan of quick recipes and suya surely falls into that category. Marinating the meat with the suya spice for a decent amount of time is important to allow the flavours to seep in but I assure you that the actual cooking time is very less for suya.

It’s impressive
If you are having some friends over for a fun night in, I guarantee that a plate of hot suya will simply blow their minds! You will be instantly elevated to the status of culinary goddess in your circle! Also ideal for a wedding, a party, corporate event and more

So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and whip up some suya using my tried and tested recipe below. Looking for the spice mix?
