Peppered Gizzards


So this recipe has been a long time coming, I keep procrastinating and I apologize for that. I made these at one of my at home dinners and they quickly became a hit. PS: this is a VERY spicy dish so if you can't tolerate spicy meals, I beg this is not for you. Haha. Well I hope you like it when you try it. 
  • 2 trays of gizzards(that's how they were sold when I got them, about 1/2 a pound)
  • 2-3 scotch bonnet peppers(depends on how spicy you want it)
  • 1/2 ginger
  • 2 garlic
  • 1/2 onion 
  • 1 teaspoon powdered red pepper(depends on your spicy tolerance)
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon seasoning salt 
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper 
  • 1 tablespoon oil 
  • Oil for frying 


1) Wash the gizzards well, steam(precook) it, then add all powdered spices with the exception of red pepper flakes .....allow it to steam for awhile 
2) Heat up some oil on medium heat and deep fry the gizzards until it's dark brown
3)While gizzards are frying, blend ginger,onion, scotch bonnet peppers and garlic with 1 small cube of knorr and 1 teaspoon of seasoning salt
4)In a small sauce pan, add the tablespoon of oil and the blended spices and stir until the sauce almost thickens up, add in the fried gizzards and red pepper flakes and stir it all together until all the gizzards is coated in the sauce. 
5) Serve as an appetizer, side dish or whatever is preferred, everytime I made this there were people consuming alcohol so it worked for them

After adding seasoning, stir and let it steam some more


Ready for frying 


I used a whole onion because I had a lot of gizzards to coat

Blended and ready to coat the gizzards.
