Jellof rice with fried fresh fish.

in Foodies Bee Hivelast month

I enjoyed Easter with a sumptuous jellof rice with fried fresh fish prepared by me. I was seeing a movie yesterday and I saw the actors and actresses eat while acting, I loved it and then I decided to prepare the same rice and eat today, so I went to the market and bought few stuffs.

I bought rice, fresh tomatoes, sachet pepper onions tomatoe paste, groundnut oil, fresh fish, onions, pepper, Maggi, Onga and crayfish. Few other things I had them at home, so above are the ingredients I bought.


My measurements

  • 3 cups of rice
  • 100 naira fresh tomatoes
  • 2 sachets of groundnut oil
  • 3 big onions
  • 5 cubes of Maggi
  • A full teacup of crayfish and pepper
  • 1 and a half teaspoon of salt
  • 1 sachet of pepper onion tomato paste.
  • 2 fishes

How to go about the preparation proper


  • I parboiled the rice and while it was on fire, I washed the fresh fish I bought. I sliced onions, grind pepper and poured it inside the pot alongside with salt and Maggi.




  • Immediately the rice boiled, I brought the pot down and washed it, while doing that, I steamed the fish. While that was going on, I prepared other things like slicing of the fresh tomatoes and more onions, grinding pepper with crayfish.





  • After 5 minutes of steaming the fish, I placed another pot on fire, allowed the water in it to dry off and then add groundnut oil. When the oil was hot, I added a little salt, onions and the pepper onion tomato paste and turned for about 5 minutes.


  • I added the fresh tomatoes and allowed it to steam for 5 minutes before adding the water of the fish I steamed, onions, crayfish, Maggi, salt, pepper and finally the rice before turning it to have a good taste.


  • The food was on fire for about 20 minutes and it was done.


  • I placed a frying pan on the same fire, when it was hot, I added the fish I steamed, turned it every minute till it was a bit strong and somehow brownie.



  • Boom everything was ready 🤗, so I scooped the rice gently into a plate and added the fish I fried.
    Yummy yummy it was and so so delicious trust me.
