In a bowl, mix 100g of Suya, salt and oil together and set aside.

Using your soaked wooden skewer , insert a cubed meat, onion, pepper and repeat the process on each skewer.

Tip: Soaking the wooden skewers prevents it from burning quickly when placed on a grill.

Pour the marinade over the meat and leave for at least an hour.

Remove your meat from the fridge and bring it to room temperature, (which should take about 20 minutes).

The best form of grilling this is by using charcoal, which lends its smokiness to the nutty taste of the Suya spice mix. 

Sprinkle half the remaining Suya over the meat and charcoal grill it (for 2 minutes on each side for a medium grilled steak or 3 minutes for a well done steak).

Once cooked sprinkle with the remaining Suya and serve with your favourite green salad.
