This is another popular type of stew that you can find in every Nigerian home it is similar to this Nigerian beef stew and they use similar ingredients too.

Every West African stew recipe starts with a common pepper mix which consists of red bell pepper, tomatoes, onions, and scotch bonnet chilli. Some even take it further and add other types of pepper to their mix. This pepper mix is typically cooked in palm, vegetable or groundnut oil until fried.

Some also prefer it more fluidly like the consistency you get with Buka stew. For my Nigerian stew, I am using red bream also known as red headless. This fish is so delicious and holds its shape when cooked and doesn’t taste too fishy.  

The other types of fish you may use or that are popularly used in African fish stew includes croaker fish, Hake fish, Mackerel know as Titus fish in Nigeria. You can also use Tilapia fish but I prefer to fry it except I am making imooyo.

I grilled the fish used for today’s recipe to keep it healthy but you may choose to fry it if you desire.
