Catfish pepper soup, also called point and kill, is a rich Nigerian soup enjoyed for its peppery and distinct taste.




  1. Clean the catfish, and slice it into 1-inch thick pieces.
  2. Boil some water and pour it over the fish chunks, stirring constantly. The hot water toughens the fish skin, preventing it from falling apart during cooking.
  3. Place the fish pieces in a pot with just enough water to cover them. Add the seasoning cubes, onion chunks, and habanero pepper. Bring to a boil.
  4. Add the ground ehu and scent leaves, and continue to simmer until the fish is done.
  5. Season with salt and pepper, and leave to simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove the onion pieces, and serve hot.
