You should utilize tilapia, basa, bream or any smallish entire fish you favor.
It is a recipe from the African ‘Slave Coast’ area – Behin, however often called Dahomey earlier than the 1970s.
this a part of Africa, the kitchen can be exterior or in a separate
constructing away from the accomodation and it will be cooked in a big
black pot sitting on three stones over a hearth of wooden.
You possibly can recreate
that in your again backyard when you want – simmer the stew for about 20
minutes – however I like to recommend the crockpot for this 😉
It is going to take
round Four hours to cook dinner (so a little bit longer, however then you do not have to
construct the fireplace) You possibly can swap it on and go away it while you get on with
one thing else.
After all, you possibly can additionally make it over a campfire, utilizing the catch of the day! Or down on the seashore over coals.
