Thieboudienne, or ceebu jen, or thiéboudiène is a traditional dish from Senegal. It is made from fish, rice and tomato sauce. Its other ingredients include onions, carrots, cabbage, cassava and peanut oil. Its ingredients are common in the country. The name of the dish comes from a Wolof word meaning "rice" and "fish".[1]

The American Southern dish Savannah red rice resembles thieboudienne, suggested a creolization of the dish from West Africa to the New World.[2][3]
