A hot and spicy hot sauce made in Ghana, and other part of West Africa.
- 1 Pound Powdered Shrimp
- 1 Pound Powdered Bony Fish Or Anchovies
- 1 Tbsp Powdered Cayenne Pepper
- 1 Bulb Onions Blended
- 1/4 Pound Ginger root Blended
- 1 Cube Maggie
- 1 Cup Canola Oil
- Pinch of Salt
- 1 14 oz Tomato Paste
- 3 Habanero Pepper
Start by frying the blended onions for 5 minutes.
Add your blended ginger and let it cook for another 5 minutes.
Add bony fish and shrimp powder and stir in the Maggie cube.
Lower the stove and let it simmer for another 20-30 minutes and add your can of tomato paste.
After about 7 minutes your world famous shitto is ready.
I know, the name is quite close to a certain bad word we all know, and actually a British TV network run a story on it in hilarious fashion. However those who've tasted it know what the deal is, no other hot sauce in the world comes close.
Growing up, Shitto was a delicacy and we had it a few times a year. We would eat it with rice, Waakye, Kenkey, Banku; and can also be used as a dip for fries, spring rolls, dumplings, etc.
