Beef or chicken is generously seasoned with suya spice and charred over an open flame – a classic Nigerian street food. On hot nights, you can drive through Lagos and spot crowds around a hot grill, a grill master picking skewers off and trading them for cash. I use the seasoning mix on roasted vegetables, mixed into a quick relish of ginger, scallions and limes, and spooned over everything. Be sure to get a healthy amount of caramelization on the roasted vegetables. It is important for flavour! — Yewande Komolafe
