Fresh Fish stew with vegetables (Caribbean Stewed fish altered for my Nigerian palate)

This fish stew is so delicious one cannot describe it. If you love like Caribbean stewed fish, then,you'll love this in a finger licking way. I left out a few ingredients that I think my local Nigerian palate will not enjoy. Boiled my fish the Nigerian way before adding unlike the Carribean method of just stir frying fish  along with vegetables. These pieces are large and may not cook through the way we like it here. My boiling before adding is just to ensure that my fish cook well well and I have fish stock to make sauce because definitely, my Nigerian palate will enjoy this with a hot plate of boiled rice. The stew is meant to be served as a meal sha but since I'm not really watching my weight at the moment, that alone without boiled rice won't fill me up. So I got a little bit creative and came up with this delicious pot of Nigerian fresh fish stew cooked with colourful assorted vegetables, with my Naija local flavour in there. This pot of fish stew serves 7.

How to cook Nigerian tomato stew with chicken

Nigerian tomato stew can be really delicious when cooked with chicken, it doesn't have to be oily all the time. Sometimes I make stew with little or no oil and it turns out great. You can make this stew thick by adding very little stock or light by adding just a little stock (Water). Honestly, the live chicken that you just get slaughtered and dressed at the market is the best for Nigerian chicken stew. If you are using frozen chicken, let it be the hard chicken and not broilers (Soft). Frozen soft chicken easily gets overcooked and falls off the bones making your stew not too palatable. By now you already know my secret to the best Nigerian tomato stew. Even if you have never got it right with tomato stews, just try my recipe and see.

How to cook moi moi in tea mugs

If you are one of those who throw away tea mugs whenever an accident breaks their handles, STOP. There is good use for them in that kitchen. With the health implications of making moi moi in plastic containers and cellophane bags, Nigerians are coming up with better, healthier ways of cooking, getting same great flavour and nutrients without loading on cancer and other diseases.
This moi moi cooked in tea mugs is absolutely delicious, cooked through and tastes even better. Aside tea mugs, other ceramic containers can be used to make moi moi. Even in the microwave, we know that heating food with ceramic is way better than heating in plastic plates.

How to cook ogbono soup without oil

Ogbono soup cooked without oil is very delicious and nutritious too. Doesn't have that palm oil feel. For fat free Nigerian soup cooking, try this. Palm oil is added to almost all Nigerian soups, but come to think of it, this oil never enhances the taste of any food.
