Salted Pepper Soup


  • 1 onion
  • 1 scotch bonnet
  • 1 whole garlic clove
  • ¼ lb goat meat
  • 1 tbsp dry ground pepper (to desired spice level)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tbsp pepper soup mix
  • ½ lb tilapia
  • ½ lb snapper
  • 1 pack Maggi Seasoning
  • ¼ lb shrimp



Roughly chop onion into medium-size pieces.

Remove top stem from scotch bonnet.

Place in blender with ¼ cup of water and blend for 30-40 seconds.

Set aside.


With a small knife, remove all fat from the goat meat.

There should not be any visible white pieces on the cut of meat.

In a small pot on high heat, add meat, Maggi Seasoning and veggie mixture.

Bring to boil, then reduce to medium heat.

Cook until meat is tender, about 15 - 20 minutes.

It should easily shred apart, using only the cooking spoon.

Continue to cook on medium heat, adding snapper, tilapia, shrimp, and 1 cup of water.

Add pepper soup mix, dry ground pepper, bay leaves and garlic to the mixture in the pot.
