Battered Pepper Shark

  • 1 Boneless Shark Fillets (Cod, Tuna)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Afrikadabra Spice Mix
  • 2 Teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Egg, Beaten
  • Oil For Frying

Mix the flour, spices and salt together in a medium size bowl. Remove 1/2 cup of the mixture into a medium sized paper or plastic bag. To the remaining flour, add the water and egg and beat until smooth.

Heat one to two inches of oil in a large skillet or frying pan (preferably non-stick). Place two or three of the fillets into the bag with the flour, hold the open end closed and gently shake to coat. Remove from bag, gently shaking off excess flour. Dip into the batter and fry in hot oil, turning once, until golden brown. Repeat process until all fillets are finished. Do not crowd fish into pan when frying.

Beans and Groundnut Relish

  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 2 large tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • 2 cups cooked pea beans
  • 1 pint water

In a 2-quart saucepan sauté the chopped onion in the oil until light brown. Add the tomatoes and the peanutbutter and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the pea beans and the water. Simmer for ½ hour or until mixture is thick.


  • 3 Cups Whole Wheat, Cleaned
  • 1-2 Pounds Stewing Beef
  • 1 Three Inch Finger Of Ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon Cumin
  • 1 Whole Hot Chili Pepper
  • Salt And Pepper
  • 2-3 Large Ripe Tomatoes
  • 1 Large Red Onion
  • 1 Large White Onion

Measure 1 1/2 cups of the whole wheat and put in a large saucepan. Add 3 cups water and one teaspoon of salt. Cover, place on high heat, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and continue cooking until wheat is soft, adding water as necessary (wheat should always be covered with water and should not dry out as when cooking rice).

At the same time, place meat in a medium saucepan. Add ginger, which has been cut into chunks, cumin, whole chili pepper, and salt and pepper to taste. Add enough water to cover meat, cover sauce pan, and place over high heat. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook until meat is soft and tender, again adding water as necessary.

Place 1/2 of the remaining wheat in a food mill or spice grinder. Grind until wheat is broken, but not powdered. Add to the wheat which is now soft, adding enough water to make a soft, oatmeal type mixture. Continue cooking and stirring over medium heat. While it is cooking, grind the remaining wheat until it is flour. Add this to the wheat mixture, adding enough water to keep the soft, oatmeal texture. Cook for 20-30 minutes. Add meat mixture, including remaining liquid. Stir together and cook until the mixture is thick, but not dry.

Form the fish mixture into oblong, finger-shapes. Coat with the breadcrumbs, pressing them slightly into the fishsticks with the flat side of a knife.This ensures that the crumbs stick and also creates a flat surface so that the sticks cook evenly.

They can also be made ahead and reheated in the oven or microwave.
