Fish Peppersoup

Hello everyone, how are you doing?

So it’s getting colder in the UK and some other parts of the world and as I have not put up a recipe for fish peppersoup, this is the right time to do so as fish peppersoup is one soup that soothes cold, flu and most winter ailment.

Fish pepper soup is a light soup that is spicy and delicious which is usually served at Nigerian restaurants and bars .

Fish peppersoup is traditionally cooked with catfish and also reffered to as point and kill peppersoup but you can use other types of fresh fish. I have used catfish for this recipe. Let’s cook:
