Seafood Efo | Video

I often think that it’s such a shame that more people don’t know about our food so I’m making it my business to spread the word and get people excited about Nigerian food and Nigerian-inspired recipes!

In my new series “Nigerian Food Made Easy” I’ll feature Nigerian and Nigerian-inspired recipes. First up, efo (eh-foh)!



You can find the full recipe write up here. If you get a chance to try it, I’d love to hear/see how it turned out! You can find me on InstagramPinterestFacebook and Twitter, share your creation using the hashtag #chinnyskitchen.

Thanks for watching! x

    Hi Chinny! I ran across your site while researching Nigerian recipes, and am so excited to make your Seafood Efo as a surprise for my boyfriend this weekend. He doesn’t like steamed rice, though. Can you recommend an alternative to serve it over? Thanks so much!

    • Hi Heather! I’m so glad to hear you’re going to be trying this! You could serve the efo with pounded yam which is a traditional Nigerian pairing. Quinoa or bulgur wheat work really well too! Good luck! 🙂 x
