Suya Spiced Sushi

Suya Spiced Sushi

Guys, I need help.

No seriously. Of recent, I’ve become obsessed with suya flavored food. I don’t know whether it developed because I ate an unhealthy amount of suya while I was in Lagos this year, or because once I bought too many packs of suya spice. Regardless, I’ve made at least 8 different suya flavored recipes. It’s disgusting.

Not the taste, of course. Just that I’ve made so many recipes. It’s a wonder I haven’t made any suya-flavored drinks yet.

Anyway, for this recipe, I couldn’t decide whether to create it using fish or chicken. So I thought – eh, what the heck, I’ll do both. I had more than enough suya spice to go round anyway. 

Which one tasted better? You’ll have to try it for yourself to know.

You know I love you.

  4. OR Fry the fish in a lightly greased pan till fully cooked
  5. Peel and julienne carrots and avocado (i.e. cut into long matchsticks)
Wrapping the sushi
  1. Spread rice in a rectangular shape over cling film/plastic wrap
  2. Place chicken/fish, carrots and avocado in the center
  3. Roll one side of the rice over the other and peel back the plastic wrap
  4. Sprinkle crushed plantain chips over the rice and place the plastic wrap back
  5. Mold and compress the roll then slice with a sharp knife
  6. Remove the plastic wrap and serve on a plate
  1. Ofada rice should be cooked in salt and water without parboiling (removing starch) so that it remains sticky. Cool rice to room temperature before wrapping
