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