This sauce embodies Kitchen of Africa's passion for experimenting and fusing generational recipes with global spices. After mastering the traditional Yassa recipe, Jainaba added a personal touch to create her signature Yassa sauce. She uses a proprietary spice blend that improves on the classic recipe while retaining its authentic flavor and appeal.

Yassa captures the tropical flavors of Africa with big, bright citrus notes. It is the perfect example of how simple fresh ingredients always make the best dishes. KOA starts by stir-frying fresh ginger and garlic to release their bold flavors. They then add gently caramelized onions for sweetness, fresh citrus juice for brightness and balance, smoky paprika and other warm spices to create an exotic essence. Finally, it's simmered, slowly, in an imported Dijon mustard sauce, for a rich and complex depth of flavors.

To whip up a quick meal on busy weekdays, simmer covered with chicken, meat, seafood, tofu and/or vegetables. For a robust and satisfying vegan meal, our Slow-Simmered Kale with Caramelized Onions and Black-Eyed Peas is always a crowd pleaser.
