How To Prepare Afang Soup By Sisiyemie (Video)

Afang Soup can be very easy to prepare and quite straightforward. It is one delicious soup you should try if you haven’t done that already.

1 Cup Stock Fish, Shredded
1 Smoked Catfish
1 Cup Large Smoked Prawns
10 Pieces Of Goat Meat
1 Cup Palm Oil
8 Cups Waterleaf, Washed and Cut N300 Naira Worth
3 Cups Afang Leaf /Okazi , Blended N500 Naira Worth
Salt To Taste
Seasoning To Taste
1 Cup Periwinkle (De-Shelled)
1/4 Cup Ground Crayfish
1 Tablespoon Ground Pepper
6 Pieces Ponmo (Cow Hide)
  • In a pot boil goat meat, add salt, water and seasoning cube. Allow to cook. When it is half way cooked, add pre-boiled Ponmo, washed and deboned smoked fishes, smoked prawns, crayfish, stir and allow to cook some more till it is done and the liquid level is reduced.
  • Chop and wash Waterleaf with a scrubbing method
  • Wash Afang leaves and slice them. Next it would need to be pounded (with crayfish) or an easier method I use is place it in a blender, add some water and blend.
  • Add washed Waterleaf to the pot of boiling meats and fishes, add periwinkle, more crayfish and season to taste.
  • Cover and allow to cook some more for 5 minutes, you will notice the Waterleaf will release water and if your initial stock was not properly reduced, your soup may end up being too watery.
  • After 5 minutes, add blended Afang leaves and stir the pot. Add Palm Oil, cover and allow to cook for a minute.
  • If you leave the Afang to over cook, the colour may no longer be appetising.
  • Serve with Eba or my favourite, Fufu.
