The appetizers are usually made of both an exotic fruit: (banana, avocado) and a sort of light meat: fish, crab, chicken. The avocado accompanies the meats: avocado and crab, avocado with smoked fish or simple with dressing, like the avocado with groundnut dressing. This appetizer is prepared with ripe avocados, shelled groundnuts and peanuts, paprika, lemon juice and cinnamon or Chile powder (cayenne). The avocado meals are served sometimes on fingers of toast or with fufu. Fufu (fufu of the African cuisine) is made by boiling cassava, yam or plantain, then pounded and mashed. The hot plantain crisps are a famous snack or appetizer, simply made of firm plantains, lemon juice, ginger, oil and cayenne pepper. Shrimp with Ghana sauce is also served as an appetizer; this meal includes: shelled cooked shrimp, the rare red pepper, onion and garlic powder, paprika, dry red wine and ground spices (ginger, cardamom, coriander, cloves and nutmeg).
