AUTHENTIC SUYA RECIPE with SPIICERY ORGANIC SUYA SPICE
Suya is a well-known spicy meat skewer in West Africa. It is traditionally made by mostly the northerners in some of the West African countries. Having lived in Northern Nigeria for many years made me realize that it is either you know how to make Suya or not, I wish that was typed differently 😊. The uniqueness about Suya is that the recipes cannot be improvised, switched or modified at least not for Millennials, and older; otherwise it will lose its authenticity.
For most people in diaspora, trying to prepare this deliciousness can be challenging. But worry no more my fellow Suya lovers as I have been able to master the art and science of achieving this great feat. I spent almost a month in northern Nigeria learning how to make this staple. “Mai Tsire” as they are popularly called in northern Nigeria stressed it to me that I followed his instructions. Now, I am going to pass along the same rule; kindly adhere to the steps I am about to share. One can use and outdoor grill or and indoor oven for the final roasting process.

                                                                              RECIPES
Thin skewers
1 pack thinly sliced Ribeye
1 bottle spiiCery Organic Suya spice
¼ teaspoon salt (Optional)
1 cup sliced Tomato (Optional)
½ cup sliced red Onion (Optional)
DIRECTIONS
• Preheat oven at 375oc or fire up the grill
• Pour ¾ bottle of spiiCery Organic Suya spice on a flat surface, preferably on foil paper. Add a 
        pinch ¼ teaspoon salt depending on your salt preference and mix together.
• Spread the mix on the flat surface
• Insert 2-3 thin sliced ribeye on each skewer
• Now make sure each beef skewer is generously covered with the Suya powder. Achieving 
        this process requires one to flip the skewer back and forth on the flat surface
• Squirt or drizzle some oil on the fully covered beef skewers on both sides
• If one is using an oven, please place beef on a nonstick baking rack and place on a baking
         tray. This process allows the beef/Suya to roast properly by allowing the moisture from the         beef drip into the baking tray. Leave in the oven for about 10-15mins.
• For that traditional Suya taste, lift the beef skewers and make then tilt at a 90 to 180-degree
         angle and squirt some more oil. Leave in the oven for another 8-15mins depending on how         juicy or crispy one would love it to be.
• Once roasting is complete sprinkle some more spiiCery Organic Suya Spice. Garnish with 
        some sliced tomato and red onions (optional) and voila! Suya is served!
