Seafood Jollof

Jollof is one of the most popular dishes in West Africa, and especially in Ghana. It is a dish that can be served in just about any occasion. It’s made from a base of rice and tomato sauce. While traditionally prepared with fish or meat in Ghana, we decided to mix it up and throw in some seafood.
