Try out this Rivers State meal, you will love it

Rivers State is one of coastal parts in Nigeria and a waterbodied region. it has great cuisines one could look out for. One of their meal I will be talking about today is The Native soup.

Native soup is one simple soup you can prepare quickly, you don't need to break a bank to prepare this meal. If you are tired and lazy to prepare something big, try out this meal. It isn't difficult to prepare and it doesn't take time. I will be writing two ways in which you can prepare and enjoy this meal.

First I will be showing you how you can use Seafood to prepare Native soup.

Seafood as we all know is a high protein food with low calories, it is also high in vitamins and minerals. It has lots of health benefits which includes, decrease of heart attack, obesity, stroke incidence and hypertension.

Ingredients for making Seafood Native Soup

Fresh fish(Tilapia, Catfish, Crocker)

Meat(goat meat, cow meat etc)

Uziza leaf

Snails

Prawns or shrimps

Clams(Ngolo) or mussels

Periwinkles

Ofor or cocoayam for thickening

Palm oil

Small bulb of onion

Maggi cubes, salt and fresh pepper

Procedures

1. Wash your meat thoroughly with salt, add Maggi cubes to the meat and steam for 8-10 mins. After steaming, set aside. Wash your fresh fish into the pot, add your Maggi cubes and little fresh pepper and let it steam for 5-8mins, add the seafood(washed snail, prawns or shrimps, and clams or mussels) into the pot together with the fish and steam a little.

2. After steaming, set them aside. Place the pot you want to use on the fire, add your oil, onions and ofor(I prefer frying my ofor so it won't have lumps all over the soup). Add water immediately and cover the pot to boil for 10mins.

3. Add your meat, fresh pepper, salt and Maggi cubes (reduce the Maggi cube because maggi has already been added to meat and the fish). Still boiling, add your fish and the rest of the seafood, the uziza leaf as well and allow to simmer for 5mins. Lastly add the periwinkles ( I prefer adding my periwinkles last because I don't want it getting soft quick) and set it down from the fire.

Your seafood native soup is ready, enjoy with any swallow of your choice.
