Step 1

Clean the fish thoroughly, remove the grouper's head carefully. Cut the fish into medallions and set them aside with the tail. In a food mixer, prepare pepper, chilli, green pepper, yellow and red pepper and onions: Once this Nokoss is ready, add two cubes of Jumbo Deubaalé.

Turn down the heat and allow the fish to cook for between 10 and 15 minutes. Cook the shrimps and prawns separately in boiling water. Boil 5 or 6 eggs in a saucepan to decorate the dish later.

No not remove the tails from the shrimps, since they will be useful for decorating the dish.

Grate the carrots, cut the cucumbers into slices, the peppers into semi-circles and set it all aside to decorate the dish.
