There are some foods that are too tasty to give up. one of them is catfish peppersoup. My love for this meal goes beyond words. The mélange of African nutmeg (ehuru) and Njangsang produces an unmistakable and distinguishable savory taste that tingles the taste buds. I have said it and will say it again; I will NEVER give up peppersoup for no reason in this world NONE EVER! If you live in Europe, this spicy soup will keep your body warm during the cold winter months.
Try it out and thank me later in the comments area below!
Happy and healthy cooking xoxo
Catfish Peppersoup Potatoes
The distinct smell and aroma of this tasty and ultra savory dish may tickle your senses quit a bit, leaving you in a zeelicious food trance!
500g medium size Potatoes
1kg fresh Cat Fish
2 African Nutmeg seeds (Ehuru)
A handful African Spice (Njangsang seeds)
1 large Habanero Pepper
3 ripe Tomatoes
3 Parsley leaves
3 Basil leaves
6 Garlic cloves
A large piece of Ginger
1 tsp. white Pepper
2 medium Onions, diced
1/2 cup vegetable Oil
salt and maggi to taste
- Soak Njangsang overnight. This will facilitate blending.
- Wash and cut cat fish into medium slices, salt and set aside.
- Peel and wash potatoes and set aside.
- Using an old frying pan, roast nutmeg seeds (stirring constantly) till you can smell it. Take it off when you start getting a distinctive aroma.
- Next, peel off the outer shell membrane from the nutmeg seeds and grind using a food processor for dry ingredients.
- Now, cut onions and tomatoes into dice.
- Wash and parsley and basil leaves, add to a blender with tomatoes, onions, garlic,ginger and white pepper and pulse to a smooth paste.
- In a large pot, pour water, potatoes, onions, tomatoes and the other spices add broth and salt through. Cover and simmer till potatoes are parboiled.
- Add fish and cook for 15 to 20 mins untill fish is tender.
- Serve hot.
- 1. To make the soup vegetarian, leave out the fish. You can also leave out the potatoes if you are trying to lose weight and drink the soup for dinner.
- 2. Add water depending on how thin or thick you want the soup to be. I like milk medium.
