This Nigerian Fish Pepper Soup is made with Tilapia fish and is simmered in a rich stock with traditional pepper spices. 

Nigerian Fish Pepper Soup

If you love Nigerian food as much as me and pepper soup, then be sure to try my Nigerian Pepper Soup and my Nigerian Meat Stew as well.

I like to make this fish soup with a goat or beef stock that was made from scratch. Typically when making Nigerian Meat Stew, I will save some stock for this recipe for another time.

However, if you do not want to do that. You can always use a pre-made store bought bone broth stock.

Beef/Chicken or fish will do the trick.

Traditional this soup is made with whole cat fish, they are also much smaller fish than what you will find here in North America. I have tried that recipe and love it, however in North America it is not as easy to find. And so I find any white fish will do.

I used frozen tilapia fillets and they are really the best as they soak up all the pepper flavors and are bone free. Making for a very easy, quick snack in no time at all. 

Also, I highly recommend serving this with Pounded Yam another African staple food.
