  • Fresh Shito (Pepper) Sauce

    Fresh shito (pepper) sauce is a fresh tomato, onion and chili sauce much loved by Ghanaians. It is sometimes called kpakpo shito after a very popular round green pepper​ and is not to be confused with shito, black pepper sauce, which is cooked with dried ground crayfish. Following these steps, with the tool pictured (more details on the next step), you are guaranteed you will discover and understand how it is actually possible that this is one of Ghana’s fast foods, beach or picnic foods.MORE

    Tools You Will Need

    Kaaa or asanka grinding pot

    To make the sauce the traditional way, you will need the traditional Ghanaian pestle and mortar known as a kaaa or asanka depending on what language is spoken in the area (Ga and Twi respectively).

    This will also typically be sold with a wooden pestle. You may be able to find these at African markets. I managed to get one at my local Afro-Caribbean food stall in London. If you cannot find one, an ordinary pestle and mortar will do.​

    Of course, the alternative is to use a hand-held blender.

    Ingredients You Will Need

     For the fresh shito sauce you will need:

    1 onion

    2 tomatoes

    Chili peppers such as scotch bonnet, habanero or green chilies

    1 teaspoon of sea salt flakes

    Grind in the Asanka

    Grinding ingredients in asanka Grind the fresh ingredients together. If using the asanka or pestle and mortar, you will get a much easier experience with crushing and grinding the ingredients of you chop them into smaller pieces than pictured. Patience is required during this process as you will want to grind until smooth, but with a little texture remaining in the sauce.

    Alternative Blending in a Hand Held Blender

    An alternative and much easier method is to throw the ingredients into a hand-held blender and pulsing until smooth. Avoid liquidizing completely as you still want a bit of texture to remain in the sauce. There is a down-side to using this method. Apart from not achieving the authentic flavor that is said to be released by the crushing and grinding method, you will also not be able to use a handheld blender at the beach or on a picnic!​

    The fresh shito sauce is served best with grilled fish, fried fish, sardines or even corned beef. Here I made a Ghana style fish and chips.

     A typically festive West African summer spread with fresh shito, cooked black shito made with ground crayfish and kenkey. This is by far a favorite Ghanaian meal and you will often serve kenkey with shito and grilled tilapia or fried fish.
