…whetting your taste bud one meal at a time
Have you tried tilapia pepper soup? If you have not, then you are missing out. Tilapia pepper soup is one meal you can never go wrong with. Tilapia pepper soup is an excellent way to add fish to your diet. It is very delicious and good for this winter period. You and I know that winter period is no joke, especially when there are snow showers.
For this recipe, I added some Tilapia fish and catfish head. Adding fish head to your pepper soup is very tasty but you will need to apply extra care when eating because of the excess bones. It is optional so you can as well do without it.
Note that you can enjoy tilapia pepper soup alone or with plain boiled rice, boiled yam or any staple of your choice.
I marinated the fish with some dried seasoning and allowed it for some time before cooking. But it is totally up to you, you don’t have to if you don’t want. Cooking tilapia fish is simple and quick. It takes about 20minutes and don’t forget to cook on low heat.
