Suya Spice Blend is inspired by suya, a spicy meat kebab popular as a street food in the West African community. Ground almonds serve as the base for this bold blend, balancing the heat from cayenne pepper and the aromatic warmth from spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and coriander.
Suya is typically made with skewered beef, but chicken, liver, or kidney meat may also be used. The Hausa, one of the largest ethnic groups in West Africa, are credited for origins. In Nigeria, suya kebabs are seasoned with a hot, nutty suya rub before grilled over an open barbeque or flame and feature a finishing touch of vegetable or peanut oil drizzle. The finished product is similar to the Thai or Balinese dish satay. Curious Spoon’s Suya Spice Blend is crafted to deliver the delicious complex flavors of Nigerian-style suya as a fine-textured seasoning.
Ready to use as a dry rub on various meats and vegetables, this finely ground seasoning makes for a simple way to adventure your taste buds to the streets of Nigeria. It can also be used as a delicious ingredient in marinades, sauces, and dressings or to add some sunshine to your breakfast dishes such as eggs.
