What is Shito Sauce

Shito is a spicy rich sauce like paste originating from Ghana. Notably, it resembles a rich chili oil with more punch of flavor from the dried fish and shrimp and also makes a great condiment to add with rice or eggs.

What’s in it?

Its made from scotch bonnet pepper, dried shrimp and fish, ginger, tomato, garlic, vegetable oil and various spices, many of the foundations we use in Caribbean Cuisine.

Roasting Brussels Sprouts

Roasting sprouts enhances their sweetness with a little added crunch.

Here’s how to Roast these sprouts:

  • Spread the sprouts, onions and peppers across a large tray and bake at 400F/270C for 30 – 45 minutes (depending on your oven).
  • The Shito lemon mixture can be added before or after they have cooked, however I personally like to add the sauce just before they have cooked for more intense heat.
