Fresh Fish pepper soup is best taken during rainy or harmattan season. The weather is usually cold during these seasons.

 Is usually served and taken hot. It gives a kind of warmth to the body during cold weather

This is a delicacy eaten by Nigerians and Africans at large.

It is an appetizer. It is a spicy soup because of  different spices used for preparation.

It can be taken alone or with drinks, swallow, agidi, yam and rice,depends on what works well with you. Personally I love taking alone or with agidi only.

Is also seen in joints ,bars and restaurants. It’s usually called point and kill, because the fresh fish used is catfish.

You can use any fish of choice,provided it’s a fresh fish,it mustn’t be catfish for it to be called fresh fish pepper soup.
