Yebeh is a typical dish from Sierra Leone, an African country where one of its many riches is gastronomy, largely unknown outside the continent. The NGO Habitfrica organized a campaign in which several African cooks brought the aromas of their land and their culinary traditions, to make their succulent delicacies known to the world. It is a kitchen of basic products, but for that very reason healthy in which tubers, vegetables, fish, meat, nuts and condiments come into play. Homemade and very simple food.

  • 2 kg of smoked fish.
  • 1 small cup of palm oil.
