Shitor Din

Shitor Din (or Sheto, Shito, Shito, Shitto; pronounced SHEE-toe) -- from the word for pepper in the Ga language -- is a spicy hot chile pepper condiment that, like ketchup in the United States and salsa in Mexico, is served with any- and everything in Ghana, and is sometimes used as an ingredient in Ghanaian recipes. There are two versions: a spicy oil with dried chile pepper and dried shrimp; and a fresh version made from fresh chile peppers, onions, and tomatoes.

What you need

What you do

The basic Shitor recipe (above) can be jazzed up with the addition of: cayenne pepper, a crushed chicken bouillon cube, minced garlic, grated fresh ginger, finely chopped onion, a spoonful of tomato paste, and/or worcestershire sauce -- as you like it.

Fresh Shitor or Kpakpo Shito is made by using a small mortar and pestle (or an electric blender or food processor) to mix together a dozen red or yellow hot chile peppers (cleaned, seeds removed), a couple tomatoes, an onion, and a spoonful of salt. Allow to stand for a half hour before serving on any grilled chicken, fish, or meat.
