A popular evening snack in Nigeria, the art of skewering chicken, beef or fish marinaded with a dry spice mix containing groundnuts, cayenne pepper, ginger, paprika or onion powder was made popular by the Hausa people from whom the delicacy originates. Driving through Lagos in the latter hours of the day, the roadsides are lit up with the barbecue flames of vendors selling this delicious meat snack that very few can resist - myself included.
