Steps To Preparing Nigerian Catfish Pepper Soup

To prepare Cat Fish Pepper Soup, wash and cut the cat fish into 1-inch thick slices. Boil some hot water and pour on the pieces of fish, stir and remove almost immediately. This is done to toughen the skin of the fish so that it does not fall apart while cooking. Cut the onions into tiny pieces and then wash and pick the scent leaves and tear them up with your fingers into small pieces.

Place the pieces of fish in a pot and pour enough water to cover the fish, add the seasoning cubes and let it boil properly. Once it starts to boil add the ground calabash nutmeg, onions, habanero pepper and scent leaves. Allow to cook for a little longer.

Once the catfish is done, add salt to taste and leave to simmer for another 5 minutes and its ready!

Catfish Pepper Soup should always be served hot. It can be eaten alone or served with, Agidi or boiled yam. Some even love to take it with white rice.
