This recipe really satisfies my craving for diverse cuisine. It tastes simply wonderful and I would love to see more recipes native to the African continent! - 21 Jul 2008
It's a very nice soup if you're entertaining a number of people. It's unique, filled with all kinds of good stuff and very, very, very rich. It almost has a "bisque" quality to it, but "nutty" as well. I used fresh crab, which made it tiring to make -- and as careful as we were in taking the meat out of the shells, we still found shell bits in our soup. Again, highly recommended to give to people as a starter at a party. - 21 Jul 2008
