  1. Prepare the catfish – wash and cut the catfish into chunks slices. Boil some hot water and pour on the pieces of fish, stir and remove immediately. This removes the sliming, dirts and toughens the skin of the fish so that it does not fall apart during cooking.
  2. Prepare the yam – wash and cut the yam into chunks slices. Put yam pieces in a pot and season with salt, and bring to boil on medium heat for about 10 minutes. Drain water from the yam, set aside.
  3. Place the pieces of fish in a pot and pour water to just cover the fish, add the semi-cooked yam. Add stock cubes, crushes/chopped garlic and ginger, and bring to the boil.
  4. Once it starts to boil add the ground nutmegs, scotch bonnet pepper, uziza powder, onion slices, crayfish, and scent leaves – and continue cooking.
  5. Feel your soup is thicker than you want? You can add some more water and bring it to boil before turning off the heat.
  6. Once the yam and catfish are done, add salt to taste and leave to simmer for about 5 minutes. Your pepper soup is ready. Remove from the heat and serve hot. Enjoy!
