Equatorial Guinea boiled yams are super simple and delicious. The yams found in that region are probably a bit different than you would find in your local supermarket. A white yam if you can find a real one would be the closest. I was able to find them in my local Asian market and really enjoyed them with the sauces that were part of the fish with three sauces main dish.
Here are some links for the other Equatorial Guinea sauces to serve with the boiled yams : Spinach Sauce , Peanut Sauce, Avocado Sauce and the most delicious marinated fish recipe too!
