Asun (Spicy smoked goat meat recipe)


Asun is peppered smoked goat meat (skin on) that is usually served at barbeque party and it is fast becoming a popular street food in Nigeria too. Asun originated from Ondo state of Nigeria but it is now readily available everywhere in Nigeria. What is not to love about asun.

It is easy to make and requires less ingredients but the flavours can’t be compromised. Asun is served at parties and sold in Nigerian pubs called ‘cool spot’. Asun is usually very spicy but I only used 2 scotch bonnets for this recipe as I wanted my little one to be able to eat and enjoy it too. The scotch bonnet chilli over here is very hot unlike the type available in Nigeria.

Asun is roasted or grilled before being tossed into scotch bonnet chilli (ata rodo) and onion mixture. The next time you are hosting or you want to wow yourself and bring the street feel to your home, this is your go-to recipe.

Note: this recipe works for large quantities as well, just adjust the ingredients accordingly.
