  • Combine all the ingredients in a small blender cup or coffee grinder then blend them together. As shown in this video all the ingredients were bought already grounded and mixed manually. ( I recommend that you ground your peanuts to get a better taste ).
  • Pass the blended ingredients through a fine sieve (optional step).
  • Put in a container and for future use. You could also freeze it if you want.
  • Carefully place your fish on your bamboo.
  • Use this suya spice to rub on fillets tilapia fish (as demonstrated in the video) .
