Your Easter menu ~ Chef Ebun

Our wives, Oya gather here!!

I don’t know about you but I like food. I love to eat good food as much as I love to cook ( dear future hubby take note) and since Easter is right around the corner, I thought I would do you a solid and share a nice recipe from our very own chef Ebun and she calls this one Ofada Jambalaya.

As much as I like to cook, I am all about quick, simple recipes and very particular about the ingredients in a recipe because I cannot be looking for elephants tusk because of good food, I don’t like stress. So grab your pen and paper because this one is different, easy and tasty and I am definitely trying it out for Easter.

You will need…

3 cups parboiled and almost cooked ofada rice (cooled preferably)

Fried cat fish

1 piece Chicken breast (cubed, seasoned)

1/2 kg cleaned shrimps (leave shells on)

1/2 cup cooked snails 

Roughly ground fresh pepper (ata shisha)

Smoked round fish (preferably hake (panla)

2 green peppers

½ of a small zuchinni 

1bulb onion

2garlic cloves

1 cup bleached palm oil (epo gbigba)

2tsp vegetable oil

2 beef seasoning cubes

¼ cup ground crayfish

Salt as desired

Dried herb mix (basil, sage, oregano,(optional)

Oya let’s cook….

1. Heat the oil in a large wok or a big pot over medium heat. Add onions, cook gently, then add zucchini, garlic cook till tender, then add pepper, crayfish and season to taste. 

2. Add fried fish, and cook for about 2-3 minutes, then add chicken, stir to combine and then add shrimps and snails combine all, check seasoning and add the rice . Cover to simmer for 4-6 minutes. 

3. Check Seasoning and finish with parsley and fresh lime or lemon wedges.

Every obstacle you can think of

Did I tell you it was easy, I mean when she sent it to me, I was so excited.

Add a chilled drink and daz all

So let’s get planning for Easter, not every time jollof, banku and tilapia, chakalaka and pap or continental… let’s do something else this holiday because this ofada recipe recieves all the love with all your favorite proteins in attendance.

Okay people, tell us in the comments what you would usually do for Easter, do you cook, is it as grand as Christmas or is a simple affair??

See you all tomorrow..

Love and light

  1. Before covid, Easter meals were had at church in most South African (black) families. We make such a huge event out of Easter, people are very seldom home long enough to cook. So we cook and serve people at church. Well, that’s before covid. Now, we just cook like any other day.


  2. My Easter is a simple affair oo. I don’t like stress!!! 😂
    But this recipe, ooulala. Definitely trying it out. 😋
