First, ensure the fish is thoroughly cleaned. Heat some oil in a pot. Then, chop the tomatoes and onions into small pieces and add them with the jumbo. Once ready, add the mashed cassava leaves and mix well. Pour water over the mixture, just enough to moisten it slightly, adding a pinch of salt.

Let it simmer on low heat for about 15 minutes maximum until the cassava leaves are well cooked. Gently place the fish on top and let it simmer together for a while to blend flavors. If needed, add some water, about 1/2 glass, to keep the mixture moist but not too wet.

Continue cooking on low heat. To enhance the dish’s flavor, you can add more oil if desired.
