A delicious street dish from West Africa called suya has gained popularity all over the world. The recipe calls for grilling spice-marinated beef on skewers, which is then served with a side of hot peanut sauce. There is disagreement about whether or not pepper should be added to the marinade when determining the degree of spiciness, though. I have a definite preference.
I prefer suya with pepper. I love the heat and flavour that it adds to the dish, and I find that it enhances the overall taste. For me, suya without pepper is not the same, and it lacks the authenticity that makes the dish so special.
That being said, I understand why some people may prefer suya without pepper. Not everyone enjoys spicy food, and for some, the heat can be overwhelming. In these cases, it’s important to cater to personal preferences and offer both spicy and non-spicy versions of suya.
It’s also important to note that consuming too much spice can have negative effects, such as causing heartburn or stomach pain. However, the spice in pepper, capsaicin, has a variety of health benefits, including reducing inflammation and lowering blood pressure.
The decision to add pepper to suya is a matter of personal preference. While I prefer suya with pepper, others may prefer it without. The most important thing is to enjoy the dish in a way that suits your taste. So, whether you prefer pepper or no pepper in your suya, savour the flavours and enjoy this delicious street food.
