The weekend is upon us again, and what better way to delight the family, than with an interesting dish.

Among our naija delta people, especially the Bayelsans, grilled fish and plantain topped with pepper sauce is one of their numerous delicacies. Today, we will take this popular meal and give it an interesting spin. Let’s cook!

You will need:

  • 2 ripe but firm plantains
  • Smoked Titus fish
  • Fresh pepper (rodo)
  • Tomatoes (fresh and firm)
  • Onions
  • Cameroun pepper powder
  • Green pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Brown sugar
  • Salt
  • Seasoning cubes


Peel the plantain and rub a mix of salt and brown sugar on it. Place in a preheated oven and let it bake until it turns golden brown.

Cut up the peppers (rodo and green pepper), onions and tomatoes and sprinkle the Cameroun pepper, salt and seasoning cubes over them.

Heat a non stick pan and add one cooking spoon of olive oil. Toss in the onions and peppers until it releases its aroma. Add the tomatoes and flake the smoked fish into the pan. Stir together and allow to simmer for about three minutes.

Serve and enjoy with a glass of your favorite drink.
