Moveover Ofada stew....... Boyfriend Snatcher Sauce has arrived!!!!!!

Don't laugh at the name yet :)
This sauce is a guaranteed pleaser of all those who taste it.
Its unique, tasty, rich and every spoonful is loaded with proteinous goodness that does something wonderful to the senses.
If you want to give that special someone a lovely food treat, look no further!!!

Tomatoes, chopped
Bell Peppers, chopped
Onions, chopped
Scotch Bonnet pepper (ata rodo), chopped
Spring Onions, chopped
Half a cup of chopped spinach or any green leafy veggie*
Ground crayfish
De-boned mackerel, flaked
Cooked Mixed Meats
Stock cubes
Fresh prawns or shrimp*
Iru (Locust beans)
Palm Oil

*You just need a little of the green leaves for color so as not to overwhelm the sauce.
*Dried prawns can also be used

Heat up your palm oil. You don't need to bleach it or let it burn for too long.

Begin adding your chopped veggies except the spinach. Stir and fry for about 10 minutes to reduce the water especially if you use a lot of tomatoes.

When almost completely fried, add the iru, stock cube and crayfish.

Add your chopped meats.

Add the mackerel and fresh prawns

Stir it all

Allow to simmer for about 5 mins.

The spinach goes in last in order to retain some crunch and nutritional goodness. Taste for salt, simmer for 5 more minutes and its ready.

This is one sauce you want to try. Its perfect when served with rice.
