Tiep Bou Wekh / Senegalese Rice and Fish (white)
Thiéboudiène, Thiéboudienne, tieb bou dien, tieb, chèp , ceebu jën? Senegalese or Malian? I’m not sure, but I know it’s one of the most delicious dishes in Africa. This wolof rice with fish is the national dish of Senegal. In Mali, for example, it is a dish called zamè. Thiéboudienne comes from Wolof “Rice” (ceeb) and “fish” (jën).
Thiéboudienne is made with rice, fish, tomato sauce, and vegetables (cabbage, carrot, cassava, eggplant, onion …).
