Test Kitchen Tips:
Suya Spice Blend is a staple seasoning in West Africa, especially in Nigerian cuisine. It is a flavourful dry rub typically made with a base of crushed or powdered peanuts and spices like ginger and cayenne. The nutty, fragrant blend is commonly used to season beef and chicken skewers but is also great for lamb and fish. It can be used in marinades, sauces, and dressings, as well.
