Creamy Lime Chilli Omena

Happy 2021 my honey drops!!

I hope this year has kicked off well for all of you. For me, it started of calmly and I have a sense of nervousness and anxiety which I am slowly shaking off, and most likely, as a hang-up from the rough year that 2020 was for me and for most. I am slowly easing into it and acclimating into the feel of everything and I am hoping for a beautiful one ahead. There are so many exciting things happening on the work front which I am excited to share with you all when the time comes. I am also so excited to be back to regular posting and creating both for my blog and channel! The recipes scheduled for this year are out-of-this-world-good and you will fall inlove with each one!

For today, we are making some delicious creamy lime chili omena. Let’s get into it!

Lemon Infused Chili Omena

I know many of you must have a serious sneer on your face just at the mention of omena. Omena sends fear, repulsion and salivation in equal measure to different people across the country. These are small fish in the same family as anchovies caught in Lake Victoria, sun dried then sold. They are very popular with comunities at the lake basin, but are slowly taking root all over the county. These little fishies can be quite challenging to prepare but once you get it right, it is nothing but bliss.

In my book, EVERYTHING can be made delicious, just as everything can be made to taste boring. You have the choice, and the ability to decide where you want to fall. Growing up, we rarely had omena. When I finally tasted some at a family friend’s house, I was far from impressed and like many other people, I just disliked it. But that experince pushed my mom to get a recipe that works. And she did land on one. Today’s recipe is her’s together with some twists of my own. It is nothing short of splendid. Really, you must try this out!
