If you’re a fan of good food, you definitely should try this delicious atama soup recipe. It is absolutely delightful! Here’s how to make it.

Serves: 4


500g palm fruit or 400g tinned Palm Fruit Concentrate

Assorted meat and fish

Beef or goat meat

Cow skin (ponmo)

1 Smoked fish

1 medium-sized dry fish

1 Stockfish

1 handful thinly sliced atama leaves

1 onion

2 tablespoons ground crayfish

2 milk cups shelled or unshelled periwinkle

Habanero pepper

2 cubes mamador seasoning



Step 1:  Place the pieces of beef or goat meat, pieces of ponmo and stock fish in a pot. Add as little water as possible, diced onion and the mamador seasoning then cover and cook till tender. Add the deboned dry fish and/or smoked fish when almost done.

Step 2: Boil the palm fruit in a pot of water for about 30 minutes then pound with a mortar and pestle. Pour hot water into the batter and extract the water using a sieve.

Step 3: Pour the extracted palm fruit concentrate in another pot, set the pot on the stove and start cooking on high heat. Leave to boil till you notice some red oil at the top of the palm fruit extract. If you think that it is watery, cook till the extract has thickened to a medium consistency.

Step 4: Add the cooked meat and fish with the meat stock, crayfish and pepper, the pre-cooked periwinkles, the atama leaves and salt to taste. Stir gently and leave to simmer for 5 minutes.
