SUMPTUOUS SOUR FIG CEVICHE



RECIPE: SUMPTUOUS SOUR FIG CEVICHE

FROM COASTAL WATERS TO THE PANTRY ... 

by reconstituting DRIED SOUR FIGS (SUURVYGIES) – lovingly crafted by women in small-scale fishing communities – you can make jam or jelly, but even more simply, when squeezed over raw fish it adds the umami level. The salty acidity in the vygies is a refreshing change to lemon or lime.

Celebrate our proud coastal cultural heritage with this product offering from the ABALOBI COASTAL PANTRY.
