Asun (Smoked Goat Meat)



Literally, asun means smoked and smoked goat meat is generally referred to as asun. Goat meat itself has a distinct flavour; smoked, all this really just blends to make asun what it is. A very popular delicacy in Nigeria and especially at parties, asun is a delight for many as it is sold at most restaurants and bars. Most people would usually just have asun on it's own, paired with their favourite drink. It makes for a great starter as well, it can be  part of the appetizer we often refer to as small chops as the meats are already cut into bite-sizes. Made from goat meat, a sun is first smoked on a barbecue grill, and then stirred into roughly blended spicy pepper.



Without wasting time, let me show you what you need and how-to.


Prep time- 30mins

Cooking time- 1hour




1kg grilled goat meat


Scotch bonnet (Atarodo) to taste. But note that asun is usually spicy


2 large onions


seasoning cube


½ cooking spoon vegetable oil 


Salt to taste


Freshly made Asun



Blend pepper and one onion coarsely, set aside.


Slice the other onion and set aside. 


Cut the grilled goat meat into bite-sizes. 


Place a wok or frying pan on a stove top and set to medium heat, add vegetable oil. 


When it’s hot, add the peppers and onions and saute. Add the seasoning and salt to taste. Let that cook for about 15 minutes.


Then add the goat meat, stir to combine. Allow this to fry for another 10 minutes. 


Now add the slices onion to the add to the meat and combine.


Add some  chopped green peppers if using. 


Fry till the onions caramelise a bit and your asun is ready. 


See how simple that is? So tell me, will you be trying this recipe? I'll like to hear from you,  let me know how it goes if you do try it out.
