  • 6-8 Snails
  • 4 medium size greenish-yellowy plantain (not too hard or too soft)
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 1 large onion bulb
  • 3 large tomatoes (fresh tomatoes)
  • 2 medium Scotch Bonnet pepper (Ata Rodo. If you want it more spicy, you can add more)
  • 5 table spoons of oil
  • 2 cubes of Seasoning (I prefer Knorr)
  • A pinch of curry and thyme



  • The snails should be cut into halves, properly cleaned with lime and alum, and then put into a pot.
  • Pour in enough water into the pot to boil the snail and add salt. Let the snail boil to your desired tenderness.


  • Peel off the plantain skin and cut it into round pieces.
  • Put the plantain into a pot, add enough water to boil it and add salt.
  • Let the plantain boil to your desired tenderness. Make sure it does not get too soft.

Peppered Sauce

  • Place a clean pot on the fire. Make sure it is dry to avoid the oil from splashing on you while cooking. Then pour the oil into the pot.
  • Add the grated garlic and sliced onions (let it stay on for about 2 mins while you stir). Then add the pepper (let it stay on for another 2 mins, stir occasionally)
  • Add the diced tomatoes and let cook on medium low heat for another 10 mins (stir occasionally)
  • Reduce the heat to low, then add the curry, thyme and cubed seasoning. Ensure you stir to mix in the ingredients.
  • If the sauce is too thick, you can add a little water to the mixture.
  • Add the snails in the pot and increase the heat to medium low to allow the snails get infused with the sauce for 10mins.
  • Let it simmer and voila! It’s ready. Enjoy it.
