Ukwa  with Peppered Salmon
Growing up, as an Igbo girl Ukwa was a staple in my house. Well mostly the fried one that you snack on. I remember whenever anyone came from the East to visit; it was ukwa and bread we always got.
Over the years, learning from my mom and aunts, I have put my own spin in the way I cook it. I love Onugbu! (bitterleaf), I love the taste that bitterleaf gives.
