Asun (Spicy Roast Goat) – a delectable spicy roasted goat chopped into bite-sized pieces ,with big bold aromatic flavors from onions,  habanero, garlic  and bell peppers. Smokey, sizzling, spicy! Definitely not for the faint-hearted.native to the Yaruba speaking Ondo people in Western Nigeria.

Goat meat isn’t that well-celebrated here in the U.S. But in most other parts of the world   , especially West Africa and the Caribbeans  it’s  always a crowd favorite during parties , special occasions and Christmas.

 

We just goat a whole goat from a local farm, here in Los Angeles  ,in preparation for Christmas . And guess what ? I have been cooking a storm.  It’s almost Christmas an am stuffed . No goat meat for me on Christmas .  But this spicy roast goat is making an appearance on the Christmas  spread for others to indulge .

You will be  licking your plate and  sweating all over my face. Oh yes, this dish is definitely not for the faint-hearted.

The authentic Asun (Spicy Roast Goat ) recipe calls for a whole smoked goat in an open pit with skin on, slow roasted to perfection and cut into smaller pieces and sauteed with lots of onions and peppers to spice things up.

This is an easy version for the home cook.

But if you can’t get hold of a smoked goat meat, you can use skinless goat . It tastes  just  as good as the smoked version! Pinky swear!

To tone down the heat use less peppers , and more  red and green bell peppers – a little sweetness from the red bell pepper goes way further. It’s a must try!

Serve this aromatic sizzling Asun simply with this oven baked  Jollof rice here  or fried  plantains.

You’ll be singing for joy!.

Merry Christmas !!!!

 

Tips and Notes:

 

  1. If you can’t get hold of a smoked goat meat (which are usually frozen for days), you can proceed with the raw one with or without the skin on.
  2. If you wish to grill the meat in an open fire barbecue, you need to steam it first if it’s a female goat since it tends to be tougher. No need to steam though if you have a male goat meat.
  3. When grilling the meat in the oven, you may lightly grease the meat or the tray.
  4. You can use a food processor or blender when chopping the spices into bits to save time.
  5. When adding the peppers onto the sauteed meat, make sure that the spices has only wilted a little to create an authentic and fresh heat.
