How to Cook Catfish Pepper Soup. The best way to Cook Catfish Pepper Soup.

Catfish pepper soup is one of Nigerian’s most popular evening recipes. I have been putting this away for a very long time because of the complexity of the recipe. I had planned to make this recipe even before the launch of the “Easy guide to delicious Nigerian Foods”, one of the best products ever made in the Nigerian Kitchen.

Catfish pepper soup (point and kill) is the most popular fish pepper soup in Nigeria. We also have cow tail peppersoup, goat meat pepper soup and several others Recipes in Nigeria.

I like Nigerian foods to the point that I find it difficult to cope in a foreign environments. Well, I think this is justifiable, I have been making Nigerian foods right from my eleventh birthday. I think the first food I ever made was vegetable soup with cow liver, my dad insisted and I had no option but to obey.

Below is the image of catfish pepper soup, the popular point and kill peppersoup that is served in major restaurants and bars in Nigeria. You will find the video for this recipe at the bottom of this page. I used most of the necessary ingredients, except a very popular ingredient that was hard to find at the time of making this delicious dessert – Utazi.

Utazi is a slightly bitter leaf that is used in making a few Nigerian foods. I used these ingredients while making Nkwobi, pepper soup and African salad. Have you seen my page on how to make African salad (Abacha), it is one of the most popular and the easiest to make Igbo recipe.

So here are the ingredients for making point and kill (cat fish) peppersoup, you will end up with a very delicious recipe if you use the ingredients as listed below and also learn to incorporate them the exact way it was done in the video below. I will try my best to explain how to make cat fish peppersoup in this article too.

I used just a medium sized catfish while making the video below, so this is the exact size of ingredients that I used. You can choose to increase or decrease depending on the number of persons you are looking to feed and the number/size of the cat fish you are preparing.

This would serve 4 to 5 people.

1 medium sized catfish – 1.2KG
One big bulb of onions
Scent leaves (a handful)
Utazi leaves (very little)
1 maggi cube (spices)
Lion peppersoup spices
Kitchen glory (beef seasoning) (a sachet)
Half cup of ground crayfish
fresh pepper
salt to taste.
