AKOTONSHI (GHANAIAN STUFFED CRAB RECIPE)

Ghanaian recipes are varied and I seem to find new recipes each time, like this stuffed Crab known as Akotonshi. I was rather intrigued about this dish as I could not place it to a specific tribe in Ghana, (apart from the name suggesting it might have originated from the Ga tribe) which is a hazard guess. Please share your knowledge about this dish as it is easy to emulate with my added twist. Fresh Crabs are readily available in Ghana hence this recipe is a must try.

The easiest way to prepare this dish is to get a packet of fresh Crab meat from your fishmongers. I used my Jollof stew recipe as a base for this stuffed Crab recipe, which you can watch below.  A perfect dish to serve as a starter to impress your guest.

100g of White Crab meat
