Fried Fish in Peanut Sauce (Cameroon)
55 mins (prep 10, cooking 45)
15 ingredients
4-6 servings
This recipe was featured on week 46 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Cameroon is my 46th stop. I did take a few liberties with this recipe, since the original version called for dried shrimp (I don't recommend it). Instead, I used bonito flakes (the main ingredient in Japanese miso soup) and fresh salad shrimp.
