  • Goat meat or assorted meat
  • Palm Oil
  • Knorr cubes
  • Potash
  • Tomatoes
  • Habanero pepper - ata rodo
  • Smoked Fish

  1. Boil and season your meat. Once they have sufficiently cooked with some stock left, add your blended tomatoes and pepper.

  2. Add the crayfish and smoked fish.

  3. Bring the contents of the pot to a gentle simmer.

  4. Dissolve potash about the size of half - 3 quarters of a Knorr cube in water and add to the pot and bring to the boil. The presence of the tomatoes, will mean it wouldn't bubble up as much.

  5. Leave it to cook and in a few minutes, you will notice that the addition of the potash has caused the prior watery stock to thicken a little. Take it off the heat and let it cool down a little.

  6. Stir in Palm oil into the pot. The soup will thicken and the colour will change to a pale shade of yellowish orange

  7. Serve with green plantain (boiled or grilled) or boiled yam
