Food For Love: Pick & Dip Platter!

by Mo Aremu

In her own words…..Funke Koleosho says ‘This is a dish to serve to promote friendship and togetherness. It’s a medley of all time favourite “knick-knacks” served with a delicious (and spicy) dip. This can be served as a first or second course, while you make the main meal’.


Funke Koleosho gives a recipe for this meal.

You can use a variety of meats, seafood or vegetables….just about anything that will combine well with a tomato base spicy dip.

What you need

  • Courgettes
  • Mushrooms
  • Raw king prawns or tiger prawns
  • Lean beef (Chicken breast can also be used as an alternative or in combination)
  • Ripe plantain
  • Puna Yam
  • Chicken gizzards
  • Tom berry tomatoes
  • Pre made dipping sauce (This could be Pepe Rose sauce or Ata Dindinfrom two of my previous posts. Or you can use your own signature spicy dip recipe)

What to do

  1. Peel the yam and cut into cubed chunks, rinse. Sprinkle with some salt and deep fry until golden brown. Set aside.
  2. Cut the courgettes and mushrooms into equal sized chunks, rinse. Heat some oil in a griddle  and grill both until cooked.
  3. Peel the plantain and cut into chunks. Deep fry the plantain until golden brown. Place fried plantains on some kitchen towel to remove excess oil. Set aside
  4. Cut beef into large pieces, rinse. Boil the beef pieces, seasoned with some onions, garlic and salt. Once cooked to tenderness. grill until crispy on the outside in an oven. Set aside
  5. Shell and de-vein the prawns. Grill prawns on a hot griddle until done.
  6. Clean the chicken gizzards. Boil gizzards until soft, seasoned with some onions. garlic and salt. When cooked, grill until crispy on the outside in an oven.
  7. Skew pieces of each of the cooked items on tooth picks of satay sticks.
  8. Arrange on a large tray or lazy Suzy and serve with some dipping sauce.
