for your catfish or Tilapia fish,remove the intestines,
put in a spacious bowl,

once well marinated,add in your pepper,add water just above the quantity of your fish or as much as you want your pepper soup to come out,stir gently and cover ,let stay for about 10 mins and set on fire

Bring to boiling point and check for taste,adjust if neccessary,cover and allow to cook till your fish is evenly cooked and ready to be consumed.

Add in your scent leaf or any other leaf of your choice,stir gently,and let cook for about a min,turn off your heat and your catfish or Tilapia fish pepper soup is ready to be served.
