If you are looking for readily available fish to prepare, it is most probably going to be tilapia. In Kenya, generally. A lot of the fish you will find at the local market will be deep fried tilapia. One may choose to eat it as it is or take it home and season it further. And because I love flavor, I made this delicious deep fried tilapia recipe with rosemary and jalapenos.
Last week ,I had the pleasure of preparing lunch for a friend. I opted to cook a sage beef stir fry with garlic matoke.
Nothing beats a warm, spicy curry especially when the weather is chilly. Enter my rainbow beef biryani.
This litty lemongrass garlic mashed potatoes recipe was the result of an over abundance of potatoes. I’m curious. How do you store your potatoes? How long do they keep? Unlike most vegetables, potatoes keep quite well actually.
To say that Kenyans love nyama choma or grilled meat would be a gross understatement. Mshikaki is as ubiquitous to Kenya as matoke is to Uganda or pasta is to Italy. Kenyan beef mshikaki is probably the most common variation, although you may also use chicken or goat meat.
It might be a bit obvious for me to begin with a mention about the weather but by jove it’s cold! I don’t remember it being this cold and wet for this long. I’m all souped out and that’s why I took particular joy in cooking these stuffed whole baked fish.
Last time I posted an omena recipe, it was markedly differently prepared. In this fried omena in oyster sauce recipe, I have used more condiments and herbs, giving it a beautiful fusion of flavor.
