Catfish! catfish catfish!!!
A few days ago, I went to the Asian market by my house to get some fresh herbs for my pesto sauce that i needed to make for some salmon. I saw LIVE catfish and immediately decided I needed to make catfish pepper soup. The last time I ate catfish pepper soup was in Lagos last summer. My friend took my to this “point and kill joint” somewhere in Ikeja. We sat outside on plastic chairs and I had one of the best tasting fish dishes of my entire life! It was so good, I ordered a second one to take home and have the next day! (sigh I miss LAGOS!!!) Once I got home. I tried so hard to recreate the taste of the fish I had that night and might I say I did a mighty good job? 😀 This was definitely the best pepper soup I have made and I am “sorta” known for my pepper soup skills!
This is also an amazing meal to start your dinner with on Valentines day! Cook this peppersoup for him/her and you will sett he mood for a HOT evening! Nigerian pepper soup is a protein of choice, cooked in broth, with local spices and herbs used for seasoning. It is especially good for the cold nights we have been having recently! Hope you enjoy. recipe after the jump.
