Also it will be served with ripe plantain in orange giner juice and garlic bread. Woi!

Now after the nerve wrecking experience of waiting to taste this dish we had to run to Esther & Omega and hug them because it was so delicious.  Two thumbs up!!  Using Christophine of the soup was a splendid idea.  It has a unique smooth taste and the plantain complements.   This dish is a perfect starter of a main course or a light lunch.
