This spicy soup is a culinary delight that is enjoyed by many Nigerians, particularly during the rainy season or when seeking a comforting and invigorating meal.

The star ingredient of Fish Pepper Soup is the fish itself, often a firm white fish like catfish or tilapia. These fish varieties are chosen for their mild yet distinct flavours that perfectly complement the aromatic broth. The fish is carefully cleaned and cut into pieces, allowing it to absorb the flavours of the soup as it cooks.

To create the soup, a medley of ingredients is combined. Onions, garlic, and ginger provide a fragrant base, while peppers add a spicy kick. The choice of peppers can vary, from mild to hot, depending on personal preference. A blend of spices is added, such as aromatic spices like cloves or bay leaves, to enhance the overall taste of the soup.



The fish and seasoned broth are simmered together, allowing the flavours to meld and infuse into the fish. As the fish cooks, it becomes tender and absorbs the essence of the aromatic ingredients, resulting in a delicious and flavoursome dish.

Fish Pepper Soup is renowned for its tantalizing aroma and spicy taste. The combination of the aromatic herbs, spices, and seasonings creates a soup that is both aromatic and flavourful, enticing the senses with every spoonful.

This soup can be enjoyed on its own as a light and comforting meal, perfect for warming up during cooler weather or when seeking a revitalising dish. Alternatively, it can be paired with a side of boiled yam or plantains, providing a satisfying and wholesome meal option.
