There Roasted Ginger-Garlic Tilapia
Roasted Ginger-Garlic Tilapia is a favorite for most Ghanaians and West Africans.
There is a particular section in the city of Accra called Osu that has some of the best street food in the country.
Vendors there serve some of the tastiest tilapia you’ll find in the world.
The secret to the vendor’s success with their tilapia is ginger and garlic.
For Ghanaians and most West Africans Tilapia is a delicacy that we serve with different side dishes.
Some popular side dishes are Banku, Kenkey, Atseke, and Gari.
However, there are some people who will eat the whole fish by itself with a serving of hot sauce.
Over the weekend my family and I had the pictured fish with a serving of Atseke (Cassava Couscous) and it was so delicious I wish you were there.
If I were you I would serve my guests with this delectable dish with potatoes, rice, atseke, etc.
