African American Wedding Tips:

Tradition African fruit consists of – cashew nut, guava, mango, plantain, cizaki, breadfruit, papaya, mango, avocado, coconut, pitanga cherry, and baobab.

Seafood is another important part of African-American traditional wedding menu. When it comes to fish, it is easier when you determine it into fat and lean varieties, since the cooking methods are different. Fat fish is able to stand longer cooking procedures that includes broiling and baking. Cooking does not require much oil and you needn’t deep-fry this variety. Due to a stronger flavour, fat fish are suitable for African style of cooking with spicy sauces. Some varieties of such fishes includes whitefish, catfish, herring, shark, butterfish, shad, Salmon, trout, tuna, and mackerel.

Lean fish as the name suggests is the low-fat varieties, which you do not overcook. Poach them or prepare with stew and soup. Frying also gives amazing results. Example of lean fish is halibut, haddock, sole, red snapper, flounder, cod, pikeperch, and grouper. Drying and smoking fish provides a tasty option that helps to preserve the flavour. Those who are looking for a nice, yet cheap fish recipes can go for smoked mackerel or herring. You need to soak salted fish to dilute the salt before further cooking.

Traditional African American wedding dishes range from elaborate to simple, and it is up to you and us to make the correct choices.

The entree is the most important part of any meal! Seafood is a great addition to any menu, so here are some offerings you can serve at your wedding. Fish can be categorized as fat or lean which makes it easier to determine which cooking method you can use. Many of the varieties below are available only in African waters, so check with your local exotic supermarket to see if they have any of these delicious varieties. Shellfish such as shrimp,  crabs, crayfish and lobster will also be a great addition to any wedding meal.

Fat Fish: Fat fish can tolerate dryer, longer cooking methods such as baking, or even broiling. They should not be placed in lots of oil, nor should fat fish be deep-fried. Fat fish have a stronger flavour than lean fish and are well suited to the spicy sauces of African cooking. Swordfish, tuna, trout, salmon, shark, whitefish, butterfish, mackerel, shad, catfish and herring are all examples of varieties of fat fish.

Lean Fish: Lean fish are low in fat, and not meant to be overcooked. They should be cooked by either poaching or cooking in a stew, or made into a soup, and also they taste amazing when fried. If you want to bake a lean fish be sure to baste with a liquid to prevent drying, such as butter or an oil. Some lean fish are sole, halibut, cod, turbot, flounder, haddock, pike perch, grouper and red snapper.

Dried, Smoked and Salted Fish: Smoking and drying fish is a tasty way to preserve the flavour. Smoked herring or mackerel are nice, cheap choices for many fish recipes. Herring is salted before being dried and smoked, so be sure to soak it for several hours before adding it to anything like a sauce. You can also use kippered herring, smoked whiting, and more expensive varieties like smoked trout, haddock or salmon. Salted fish such as mackerel and cod are very common in African cooking, and remember to soak several hours prior to cooking to remove any excess salt.

Ground Crayfish: Small crustaceans, dried and ground to a powder make for this popular African seasoning. It has a pungent, fishy aroma that blends with any sauce to give it that authentic African taste. Look for African crayfish as a whole or as a powder.  If you can’t get African crayfish, try an Asian grocer for dried shrimp or fish sauce. When you purchase the whole crayfish, you can grind it up in your food processor at home.
