African Coconut Shrimp Curry

African Coconut Shrimp Curry is a Central African delicacy, from the Douala, Sawa people in Cameroon. I am excited to introduce you to a cuisine you may not already know from the coastal province of Cameroon, my homeland. In Douala Cameroon, a tribe of local fishermen called the Sawa have established a vibrant culinary industry and cuisine celebrated in the whole Central Africa region. Thanks to a coveted access to the Atlantic ocean, the Sawa cuisine in Cameroon is based on all fresh and natural ingredients brought from the Sea directly to the kitchen
