9. Now place a colander over a saucepan and gently pour the palmnut mixture into it. You need to do this gently and Leave a little of this liquid in the bottom with the black bits.

10. Rinse out the colander and place over a different bowl and gently repeat the process. Do this 3 or 4 times till you have no bits in the bottom of the pot.

11. Remove tomatoes and pour palm nut solution over the steaming meat and let it continue to cook over a high fire.

12. Blend the tomatoes and add it to the soup.

14. Stir carefully so you don't break the fish. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes longer and it is ready.
