Finger food in Cameroon

Cameroonian finger foods:

- boiled peanuts
- grilled peanuts

- grilled corn on the cob

Grilled plantain and "prunes" (seed to the right)
- grilled or boiled “prunes” - these are fruits that are savory rather than sweet, and as far as I know do not exist anywhere else than in tropical Africa. They do not travel well. You can now find them, for a high price, in Parisian African markets, but not in the United States, as far as I know.

Chicken, miondo and fried ripe plantain slices
- fried plantain slices, and/or plantain chips

- fried fish and/or spicy grilled fish

- fried chicken feet

- skewered beef, spiced with hot ground pepper (called “soya”)

- Corn flour and banana fritters

And of course: Maggi™ along with (very) hot sauce made from Scotch bonnet peppers.
