Khadija’s Kitchen: How To Prepare Catfish Pepper Soup

Nigerian Catfish Pepper Soup (popularly known as Point & Kill) is that Nigerian pepper soup that is usually eaten in exclusive restaurants.

Even if you can get Nigerian Pepper Soup in any road side restaurant, you’ll need to dig deep to find restaurants where you can have the correct Point & Kill.

So why is it called Point & Kill? LOL Usually when a group of guests arrive at these exclusive restaurant and order Catfish Pepper Soup, at least one of the group will need to go to a big bowl where some live catfish are swimming around and point out a catfish. The catfish will then be killed in the guest’s presence and taken away for preparation. So you see; you point and it is killed for you! Lol
