When 10 minutes is up, put in the catfish, fresh or dried red pepper, sliced onions, seasoning cube, and salt. Allow the broth to boil for seven minutes.

A TIP FOR EATING PEPPER SOUP
If you are not already a professional at it, is not to take water till the end. Or else, you’ll end up drinking over a litre by the time you are done with the meal. The key is to suck in some air slowly with your lips slightly parted to cool down the burning sensation. Oh! Don’t worry, you won’t faint, it’s just pepper!
