Yesterday I made one of my go to sauce for when I want a different taste to the regular stew. I was not so busy at the time I was cooking it so I decided to capture the process for the blog. This sauce is my go to for when I want something quick, delicious and fuss free. I wasn't sure what to call it ..simple sauce? assorted sauce? pepper sauce? I have for now decided to call it assorted fish and beef sauce because it makes use of atleast 3 types of fish. If you have a better name for it please let me know but for now, let's Cook:
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
400g tin chopped tomatoes or 4 fresh tomatoes
2 scotch bonnet (rodo)
3 large onions
1 large bell pepper
2 stock cubes
Few pieces smoked, grilled or fried mackerel or any fish of choice
1 dried smoked catfish
Fried assorted meat (Optional)
2 cooking spoons vegetable or sunflower oil
1) Chop the onions, bell pepper, scotch bonnet and tomatoes.
2) In a pan, heat the vegetable oil, add sliced onions and fry for 2 minutes.
3) Add the chopped tomatoes, bell pepper , scotch bonnet, stock cubes and salt.
4) Add stock fish, followed by the smoked catfish, mackerel, fried beef and leave sauce to fry for 10 minutes.
You can either shred the smoked fish or leave in whole. Also for this sauce you can add shrimps , turkey or whatever you have in the freezer. However the dried fish and grilled fish gives the vava voom to this sauce.
There you have it. Delicious, simple sauce which can be served with rice, boiled potatoes, yam, bread, etc. I served it with rice below.
It's super tasty even in its simplicity and thus has been my go to quick sauce for many years.
