Shito

Some of my more lucid readers may remember a few blogs back I featured the wonderfully named Shito and when this picture dropped into my in box I decided that I just had to use it in today’s blog.

Here for those who don’t know or are too lazy to look up the wikipedia definition is er… the wikipedia definition which refreshingly is rather accurate as far as my Ghanaian friends know.

“Shitor Din, commonly called Shito, is the word for pepper in the Ghanaian native language (Ga) of the capital Accra. Whilst the word for pepper is different for each of the Ghanaian native languages, the word ‘Shito’ is widely used as the name for the hot black pepper sauce ubiquitous in Ghanaian cuisine.

Shito sauce consists primarily of fish oil and/or vegetable oil, ginger, dried fish, prawns and/or crustaceans, tomatoes, garlic, peppers and spices. The blend of spices and fish differs between different regions and villages but owes its original recipe to the Ga tribe.[2]
In Ghana, shito is used with a variety of dishes.

These include kenkey, steamed rice, eba and waakye (rice and beans). Indeed its uses have been adapted to that of a local ketchup and/or chili oil. It is not uncommon to find shito being eaten with white bread or spring rolls. In most Chinese restaurants across Ghana, shito replaces hot oil as a condiment to fried rice.
