The first time I traveled to Ghana in 1971 I lived in Nungua along the coast and taught school. There I grew to love Ga kenkey, spicy shito, and fried fish. Though kenam and its accompaniments are easily obtained in Ghana, all three must be home-prepared when outside that environment. This classic meal was one of the first birthday dinners my adopted nephews requested when they came to live with us in 2002.
Here I am giving you two versions of Ghana’s fried fish. For the first one, on this page, the fish is rubbed with salt before cooking as the Ga people living on Ghana’s coast traditionally do. OnFlair’s version, Stuffed Fried Fish.
Use filleted whole fish.
