Ground Cumin and Allspice Squab Recipe

5 cleaned and cut-up squabs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground allspice
½ teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
Olive oil for frying
3 cups all-purpose flour

In a large bowl or resealable plastic bag, add squab and buttermilk and refrigerate 1 hour. In another resealable plastic bag, combine flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Shake to mix well. Move one piece of squab at a time from the marinade into the flour mixture. Shake well to coat completely.

Place on rack and continue with the remaining squab. Heat 1-inch vegetable oil in large deep skillet over medium-high heat until deep-fry thermometer registers between 350°F and 375°F. Fry squab a few pieces at a time so the oil doesn’t cool down. 

Turn squab to brown evenly and remove when golden and cooked through. Wings should take 10 to 15 minutes, drumsticks 15 to 20 minutes, breasts and thighs 20 to 25 minutes. Squab is done when a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F. 

Drain on a wire rack to keep squab crispy. Serve hot or cool squab to room temperature. Place it in a sealed container and refrigerate to enjoy the next day.

Simple Cooking Tips

Make sure your cooking work area has good lighting so you can safely see what you are cutting, seasoning and cooking.

Get comfortable with the recipe, read it all the way through. Always read and re-read your recipes before you start cooking.

Season and taste as you go. Always taste your food before seasoning.

Spices and herbs are essential to African food cooking and baking. Keep your spices away from sources of heat like the stove or lights. Herbs and spices can lose their flavor when exposed to humidity and heat.

Recipes are only a guideline so feel free to substitute items that you like.

When cooking with chili peppers, protect your hands and eyes by wearing rubber gloves. Or coat your hands in vegetable oil and wash them with soap and water immediately after handling.
