Fried fish & Okra 

An easy weeknight dinner! Use any fish you like. On a previous post I have the shrimp with okra recipe up, which is also super delicious. Both go perfect with dhal.


4 tilapia fillets

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp salt

2 medium onions

Chili peppers



Wash fish and pat dry. Season with turmeric, chili powder and salt. Toss together.

Heat oil in a pan. Add fish – make sure not to flip them until a golden brown. The fish will crumble.

Some parts may break and that’s okay. Once both sides are done, remove fish onto a plate.

Add sliced onions to the same pan. The brown bits left from the fish will add a nice flavor.

Add salt and cook until onions are translucent.

Toss in chili pepper and okras sliced in halves.  I added about two handfuls. Mix well in the onion mixture and let the okras cook without covering. Takes about 5-6 mins.

Turn off heat and add fish. Gently mix everything together.

Yum. Enjoy!

*Notes – it’s best to rinse okras and let them dry before slicing them. Slicing wet okra makes them extra slimy!
