Nigerian Suya

Nigerian Suya

Preservative Free and Gluten Free $ 10.00
Suya is a traditional street food of kebab-style meat found in the heavily-populated African country of Nigeria. The meat is heavily seasoned with a mixture of ground peanuts, chiles, and other spices, and then skewered and cooked over an open flame. Our Suya spice blend keeps it simple and celebrates the heritage of this beloved street food, by combining toasted and ground peanuts, with the pronounced heat from Cayenne Chiles–while also making room for some savory elements with the inclusion of Garlic, Onion, and Ginger.

Nigerian Shrimp and Grits

Recipe image


  • Water (3.5 cups) 
  • Salt (1/4 tsp)
  • Grits, not instant (1 cup) 
  • Cheddar cheese, grated (6 oz)
  • Green onions, trimmed and thinly sliced (4) 
  • Butter (4 Tbsp)
  • Shrimp, raw, medium size, peeled and deveined (1 lb)
  • Nigerian Suya Spice Blend (3 tsp)
  • Pineapple, fresh and cut into chunks (2 cup)
  • Bacon (4 slices)
  • Black pepper (to taste)
  • Olive Oil (1 tsp)


  1. Cook grits. In a medium saucepan, bring water to boil. Add salt and slowly whisk in grits. Reduce heat to low and constantly whisk, making sure grits are smooth. Stir for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cheese and half of the green onion, half of the butter, and some black pepper. 
  2. Cook bacon. Place bacon flat in a room-temperature medium skillet. Turn burner on to a medium-low heat. When the bacon starts to buckle and curl, flip and cook on the other side until the bacon browns evenly. Remove from pan and turn off burner and reserve about 1 Tbsp of the grease to cook the shrimp. 
  3. Cook shrimp. Pat shrimp dry with paper towels and season with Nigerian Suya Spice Blend. Place the skillet you used for the bacon over high heat. Add half the shrimp to the pan and sear on one side for 2-3 minutes; flip and cook an additional 1-2 minutes. Set aside and repeat with remaining shrimp. All shrimp should be white with some pink and red accents. No translucent gray should remain. 
  4. In the same skillet, add pineapple and heat until they start to turn a rich yellow color. Add shrimp and chopped bacon to skillet to reheat for a minute or two, stirring a few times. 
  5. To plate, scoop 1/4 of grits into a bowl and top with 1/4 of shrimp mixture. Garnish with green onions and enjoy!
