4 Easy Methods in preparing Abizo Shito

Heat a heavy-based saucepan, then add the sunflower oil and fry the onions over medium heat for 2–3 minutes until translucent.

Add the garlic, ginger, local species, Nutmeg and fry together for a few minutes.

Stir in the tomato purée and chicken stock until the mixture has formed a thick paste. Then pour in the powdered peppers and continue cooking and stirring for a further 10 minutes.

Finally, add the Smoked Shrimp and Smoked herrings, then cook over low heat for 30-40 minutes, stirring almost continuously to prevent the mixture from sticking to the pan.

The shito should transform from deep red to very dark brown and the oil will rise to the surface when the sauce is ready. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.

You can choose to blend the sauce with a stick blender or leave it unblended for a coarser texture. Leave to cool, then spoon into sterilized containers. There should be plenty of oil on top of the shito once it’s cooked, so make sure there is a layer about 1/2 inch thick in each container. But if there is not enough, pour in extra oil to cover. Seal the containers and store in the fridge for up to 1 month.
