Ceebu Jën (Rice and Fish)

Ceebu Jën is one of Senegal's classic dishes. There are dozens of possible variations; use this recipe as a starting point and put in whatever you like or leave out what you don't.
There are three steps to making Ceebu Jën:
  • frying onion and fish that has been stuffed with roof (orroff), a flavoring mixture
  • cooking tomatoes and other vegetables in the oil that was used to fry the fish
  • cooking the rice in broth from the vegetables.
The fish, vegetables, rice (including the scrapings from the bottom of the pot, called xooñ), and cooking liquid are combined for a grand presentation.
