Yaji (aka suya spice) is a traditional grilling spice mix that is used to make the famous Nigerian suya - grilled skewers of varying meats, a Nigerian nighttime street food fav. Suya, which are similar to a shish kebab, originated from the nomadic people of northern Nigeria and has been adopted across West Africa. Our yaji mix consists of 11 herbs and spices that will give your grilled foods deep smoky hot and rich flavor. Yaji spice isn’t just for grilling though, it can be used in so many dishes. We encourage you to explore.
