Nigerian Peanut Spice Blend
Suya spice is a powder rub used to marinate beef before grilling and serving hot with fresh onions. It was originally used in common Nigerian street food. Known for its unique spicy, smoky flavor, great suya leaves your mouth hissing and watering with each bite.Using Nigerian influences, Chef Hema Agwu brings a new style to food with his trademark blend of suya. His story began at the tender age of 8 when he boiled his very first cup of rice, setting him on a continuous journey of cooking and learning. The root of Agwus flavors stem from Nigeria, but time spent in Morocco, Eritrea, and here in NYC has expanded his palette and increased his knowledge of different flavors.
