Pepperfruit-cured Salmon

by Kitchen Butterflyon July 10, 2017
Yes. Pepper fruit cured. I knew I wanted to use it for the way I thought the spicy seeds would cut the chewy fish and add aroma. My desire would be to cure white, local fish but this is a good place to begin.  And I’m glad to say it worked. Take some processed pepper […]

Akara Sandwich, Remixed :)

by Kitchen Butterflyon June 18, 2017
Because some people might come for me if I call this Akara Burger – the original bean fritter in fresh bread mix. Random, I have a colleague who can’t eat fresh bread if it isn’t pressed together. Hear me – he takes a loaf, slice and then presses it down till all the rise, the […]

What Shall We Call It – D’Asun, DundunAsun, AsunDundun, Asundu[n]?

by Kitchen Butterflyon June 12, 2017
You can see it right? That it doesn’t matter what you call it, its delicious any which way. Three things…wait five: I’m from Edo state and yam is in our blood. In fact, I daresay my bones are made from the creamiest, most delicious tubers of yam. I love fried yam. And goatmeat. I remember […]

#SundayRice: Nigerian Snail Fried Rice

by Kitchen Butterflyon June 9, 2017
Sunday’s recipe, early….so you can shop all you like and prep for Sunday. I love the texture of Nigerian snails – the crunch and the krum krum and because I’d done the Snail Jollof version, it was easy to come up with this switch. Essentially, I took some cooked snails And chopped them into bits […]

We kind of made a podcast 🙂 – Ramon, Banks and I, talking about pepper fruit. I find the scent of pepper fruit heady. I can smell the spice, the freshness but lately, with the copious amounts I buy every week, I find myself asking people questions and noticing a few other things – Like […]

AsunDodo – What Comes After GizDodo

by Kitchen Butterflyon May 31, 2017
When hot and smoky asun (goat meat) meets sweet, soft, ripe fried plantains, sauce and onions in a quick, delicious mix. A bit like the diasporan gizdodo – a delightful combination of cooked gizzards and dodo – fried plantain. Here’s how to score major points: One: Buy ready-made asun – because who has time to cut the […]

How to Make The Bestever Zobo

by Kitchen Butterflyon May 12, 2017
After a few months of getting family members addicted to my Zobo, my friend M came round one Sunday. All excited to serve a Hausa person my version, I poured out a cup.  She tasted and smiled and turned her head, puzzled.  ‘Did you use ginger?’ ‘Yes I did, lots’ ‘What kind?’  ‘Fresh now’ ‘Ah, […]
