  1. Add water, assorted meat, smoked fish, stock fish, scotch bonnet, salt, stock cubes and palmoil in a pot and leave to boil for 10 minutes.

  2. Add K's Cuisine Ground Crayfish, Cameroon pepper, ground pepper and locust beans. Cover pot and leave to cook for another 5 minutes.

  3. Add in the chopped Okro and vegetable, check for salt and seasoning and adjust accordingly * Don't cover the pot after okro goes.

  4. Once the soup starts to bubble take off heat (Okro and vegetable cook with retained heat so it's important to not overcook).
