Le Week-End Africain - 'Yassa'

Our main course is Chicken Yassa, which is a celebrated Senegalese dish that has become popular throughout Western Africa. The chicken in marinated in lemon juice and spices and served with a spicy onion sauce and the rice we saw being cooked the other day.

Here we see the chicken being cooked on an open grill - note the spices sprinkled from a champagne bucket! Meanwhile plates are being filled with rice. Delicious!


Notre plat principal est de poulet Yassa, qui est un plat célèbre sénégalais qui est devenu populaire dans toute l'Afrique occidentale. Le poulet mariné dans du jus de citron et d'épices et servi avec une sauce à l'oignon et le riz épicé, nous avons vu en cours de cuisson, l'autre jour.

Ici, nous voyons le poulet qui  cuit sur un gril ouvert - notez les épices  répandues depuis un seau à champagne! Pendant ce temps les plats sont remplis avec du riz. Delicieux!


  1. I love the street side BBQ

    The best is the burger with onions that really keep the day going

  2. Great color in the first two shots and beautiful light in that last, available light shot.

  3. Okay so you don't have the skill, time or patience to cook up that perfect soul food dinner? Chances are a soul food restaurant in your area is serving up home cooking just like mom or grandma use to make. Thieb rouge viande
